A motorist drives south at 28.0 m/s for 3.00 min, then turns west and travels at 25.0 m/s for 2.00 min, and finally travels northwest at 30.0 m/s for 1.00 min. For this 6.00 min trip, find the following values: Total vector displacement, average speed, and average velocity.

2. Relevant equations

dX/dT

dV/dT

3. The attempt at a solution

I can find the average speed and average velocity. I can also get the magnitude of the total vector displacement. The problem I'm having is the angle. I don't even know who to approach this problem to find the angle.
