Draw the vector c = a + b
Draw the vector c = a – b
The resultant force F at an angle θ to the horizontal
The resultant force F can be split into its horizontal and vertical components
A hiker walks a distance of 6 km due east and 10 km due north.
Calculate the magnitude of their displacement and its direction from the horizontal.
Step 4: State the final answer complete with direction
R = 2√34 = 11.66 = 12 km
θ = 59° east and upwards from the horizontal
