Problem 3-25b - Vector difference -Part 2 - (B)

Determine the vector that must be added to the sum of \(A\) and \(B\) in the figure to give a net displacement of \(4.0\; km\; \text{W}\).

diagram indicating directions north and east as well as vectors A and B

Accumulated Solution

diagram indicating C at the desired 4 km West

Solution \(A_x\) \(B_x\) \(C_x\) \(R_x\)
(B) \(5.1 \cos 71\) \(6.8 \sin 52\) \(C_x\) \(4\)

No. You have  \(R\)  to the east not the west.
