Homework Help: Vector diagrams

  1. Feb 21, 2004 #1
    Our physics teacher gave us some chapter review questions from another book and I don't understand exactly what to do. Here is the question:
    a) TownA is located 380km[S64oW} of TownB. Draw a displacement vector diagram and a velocity vector diagram to the same scale.
    (Our book only shows displacement diagrams, period... Besides, how can one draw velocity diagrams for static objects?)

    b) How many velocity vectors fit into the displacement vector? Explain what this represents.
