# Answer to Question #73207 in Classical Mechanics for Antoinette Maqueda

Question #73207

A delivery truck travels 21 blocks north, 16 blocks east, and 26 blocks south. What is its final displacement from the origin? Assume the blocks are equal length.

Expert's answer

X-coordinate is

16.

Y-coordinate is

21-26=-5.

The magnitude of displacement is

d=√(〖16〗^2+(-5)^2 )=17 blocks.

The direction is

θ=tan^(-1)〖5/16〗=17° east of south.

16.

Y-coordinate is

21-26=-5.

The magnitude of displacement is

d=√(〖16〗^2+(-5)^2 )=17 blocks.

The direction is
