Physics Problem

Problem 11. During the rodeo, a clown runs 8.3 m north, turn 36 degrees east of north, and runs 1.3 m. Then, after waiting for the bull to come near, the clown turns due east and runs 6.1 m to exit the arena.

a) what is the magnitude of the clown's total displacement? Answer in units of m.

b)How many degrees east of north is the clown's total displacement? Answer in units of degrees.

a) what is the magnitude of the clown's total displacement? Answer in units of m.

b)How many degrees east of north is the clown's total displacement? Answer in units of degrees.

Physics Problem

I was able to draw the situation, but was unsure how to make it into right triangles to slove the problem.

You can simply decompose each movement into east and north components. Then, sum up all the east components and sum up all the north components and find the angle.

Note that you'll wind up with an interior angle, while the problem is asking for the angle east of north
