I am new to the US and I have taken physics and I need a little help.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For each vector given, draw a co-ordinate system and sketch the vector on a seperate sheet of paper. be sure to label the angle that the vector makes with axis.

a: a man walks 800 meters in a direction of 20 degrees west of north

b: a worker lifts a sign by exerting a force along a rope of 250N at an angle of 50 degrees with respect to the ground.

----------------------------------------------------

a jogger runs 300 meters due east and then turns & runs 500 meters due south.

what is the total distance that she ran?

800m, yes?

so then it asks me to calculate the displacement [magnitude & direction]

how do i calculate magnitude and direction?
