Solution: A spelunker is surveying a cave. She follows a passage that takes her a distance 181 m straight west, then a distance 211 m in a direction 45.0 east of south, then a distance 281 m at 30.0 east of north. After a fourth unmeasured displacement she finds herself back where she started.Use the method of components to determine the magnitude of the fourth displacement.Use the method of components to determine the direction of the fourth displacement.

Problem

A spelunker is surveying a cave. She follows a passage that takes her a distance 181 m straight west, then a distance 211 m in a direction 45.0 east of south, then a distance 281 m at 30.0 east of north. After a fourth unmeasured displacement she finds herself back where she started.

Use the method of components to determine the magnitude of the fourth displacement.

Use the method of components to determine the direction of the fourth displacement.
