A jogger travels a route that has two parts. The first is a displacement A of 2.50 km due south, and the second involoves a displacement B that points due east. (a) The resultant displacement A+B has a magnitude of 3.75 km. What is the magnitude of B, and what is the direction of A+B relative to due south? (b) suppose that A-B had a magnitude of 3.75 km. What then would be the magnitude of B, and what is the direction of A-B realtive to due south?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

:uhh:

I have an answer for this problem I just want to know if it is right.

(a)The magnitude of B is 2.80 km

A+B points 48.188 degrees East of South

(b)the magnitude of B is 2.80 km

A-B points 48.188 degrees West of South
