Homework Statement


In order to get from her classroom too the lab without going through the crowded rotunda, Jodie walks 14m (E), 42m(S), 32m(W), 13m(S), and 9m(E). Draw a scale diagram to represent all the initial displacement vector and the resultant displacement vector in Jodie's walk to the lab. What distance did Jodie walk in getting to the lab? What is the position of the lab with respect to the classroom?


Homework Equations

Try going step-by-step. You have 5 vectors (call them V1, V2, V3, V4 & V5). Find the resultant of V1 and V2, call it V6. Now find the resultant between V3 and V6. etc.
