  1. Sep 14, 2008 #1
    In a practice, a football players runs the pattern shown above. Leg A is 4 meters long, leg B is 14 meters long and leg C is 22 meters long. The angle φ between legs B and C is 44 °. (Legs A and B are perpendicular.) a) What magnitude of the displacement of the football player from her original position?b.)b) What is the value of Θ? c.)C) What is x component of her displacement? (Assume the x direction to be horizontal on that drawing above.)d) What is y component of her displacement? (Assume the y direction to be vertical on that drawing above.)
