## Homework Statement

A car drives north at 48mi/h for 10 min and then turns east and goes 5.0 mi at 66mi/h . Finally, it goes southwest at 36mi/h for 6.0 min.

Determine the car's displacement.

Assume that the positive x and y axes are directed to the east and north, respectively.

Answers should be in x and y components of the resultant

## Homework Equations

x component aka i hat lies in the x axis

y component aka j hat lies in the y axis

## The Attempt at a Solution

since the car is going north at that velocity. the magnitude of that vector is 8 mi. When the car goes east, the magnitude is given as 5.0mi. when the car moves southwest, the magnitude is 3.6mi.

Not sure if the graph is right but I thought I get feedback on it.
