- Homework Statement
- A boat travelling close to the coast is heading in

an unknown direction. The captain contacts an

observer on the shore to help her determine the

direction the boat is heading. The observer on the

shore reports that the horizontal displacement of the

boat is 750 m [E] and that the boat travelled north

an unknown distance. The captain has measured a

total distance of 1100 m that the boat moved. How far

north did the boat travel and in what direction is the

boat travelling?

- Relevant Equations
- total displacement = change in position on x axis + change in position on y axis

displacement (x) = 750 m [E]

distance = 1100 m

I drew a diagram. Now what??

distance = 1100 m
