This problem is #17 in Chapter 3 of Giancoli's 5th Edition Physics.
The summit of a mountain, 2085 m above base camp, is measured on a map to be 4580 m horizontally from the camp in a direction 32.4 degrees west of north, What are the x, y, and z components of the displacement vector from camp to summit? What is the length? Choose the x axis east, y axis north, and z axis up.
R= the square root of x^2 + y^2
