**1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data**

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.

**2. Relevant equations**

R= the square root of x^2 + y^2

**3. The attempt at a solution**
