1. In an orienteering class, you have the goal of moving as far (straight-line distance) from base
camp as possible by making three straight-line moves. You may use the following

displacements in any order: (a) a, 2.0 km due east (directly toward the east); (b) b, 2.0 km 30°

north of east (at an angle of 30° toward the north from due east); (c) c, 1.0 km due west.

Alternatively, you may substitute either -b for b or -c for c. What is the greatest distance you
can be from base camp at the end of the third displacement? (We are not concerned about the

direction.)

2. A small airplane leaves an airport on an overcast day and is later sighted 215 km away, in a
direction making an angle of 22° east of due north. This means that the direction is not due

north (directly toward the north) but is rotated 22° toward the east from due north. How far east

## and north is the airplane from the airport when sighted?

3. A hedge maze is a maze formed by tall rows of hedge. After entering, you search for the center
point and then for the exit. Figure 1 shows the entrance to such a maze and the first two choices

we make at the junctions we encounter in moving from point i to point c. We undergo three

## displacements as indicated in the overhead view of Fig. 1b

d1 = 6.00m θ1 = 40º
d2 = 6.00m θ2 = 30º
d3 = 6.00m θ3 = 0º
where the last segment is parallel to the superimposed x axis. When we reach point c, what are

the magnitude and angle of our net displacement dnet from point i?

6. In Fig.3.20 a vector lies in the xy plane, has a magnitude of 18 units, and points in a direction
r
250° from the positive direction of the x axis. Also, vector b has a magnitude of 12 units and
  r r r

8. A particle moves in the xy plane, starting from the origin at t = 0 with an initial velocity having
an x component of 20 m/s and a y component of 215 m/s. The particle experiences an

acceleration in the x direction, given by ax= 4.0 m/s2. Determine the total velocity vector at any

time.

9. A train at a constant 60.0 km/h moves east for 40.0 min, then in a direction 50.0° east of due
north for 20.0 min, and then west for 50.0 min. What are the (a) magnitude and (b) angle of its

## average velocity during this trip?

10. At one instant a bicyclist is 40.0 m due east of a park’s flagpole, going due south with a speed
of 10.0 m/s. Then 30.0 s later, the cyclist is 40.0 m due north of the flagpole, going due east

with a speed of 10.0 m/s. For the cyclist in this 30.0 s interval, what are the (a) magnitude and

(b) direction of the displacement, the (c) magni- tude and (d) direction of the average velocity,

and the (e) magni- tude and (f) direction of the average acceleration?
