# Football Pattern Vectors

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.)

Your link appears to require a password. Can you supply a picture somehow else?

Also, remember that you have to show your work on the problem before we can know how to help you.
