Vector diplacement

  1. Feb 17, 2012 #1
    In the World Pond Hockey tournament held in Plaster Rock, NB, a puck on the ice travels 20.0 m [25° W of N], gets deflected, and travels 30.0 m [35° N of W]. Determine where the puck will end up with respect to its starting point. (displacement)

    b) In the same tournament, a player is positioned 35 m [40° W of S] of the net. He shoots the puck 25 m [E] to a teammate. What second displacement does the puck have to travel in order to make it to the net?

    Thanks in advance

    *Sorry - typo on "Displacement"
