3-12. A land-rover, on the surface of Mars, moves a distance of 38 m at an angle of 180 . It then
0
turns andmoves a distance of 66 m at an angle of 270 . What is the displacement from
0
the starting position?
Choose a scale, e.g., 1 cm = 10 m
Draw each vector to scale as shown.
Measure R = 7.62 cm or R = 76.2 m
