Addition of Vectors by Graphical Methods

3-11. A woman walks 4 km east and then 8 km north. (a) Use the polygon method to find her resultant displacement. (b) Verify the result by theparallelogram method.
Let 1 cm = 1 km; Then: R = 8.94 km, ( = 63.40
3-12. A land-rover, on the surface of Mars, moves a distance of 38 m at an angle of 1800. It then turns and moves a distance of 66 m at an angle of 2700. What is the displacement from 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 mMeasure angle φ = 60.10 S of W
( = 1800 + 60.10 = 240.10 R = 76.2 m, 240.10
3-13. A surveyor starts at the southeast corner of a lot and charts the following displacements: A = 600 m, N; B = 400 m, W; C = 200 m, S; and D = 100 m, E. What is the net displacement from the starting point? .
Choose a scale, 1 cm = 100 m
Draw each vector tail to tip until all are drawn.Construct resultant from origin to finish.
R = 500 m, φ = 53.10 N of E or ( = 126.90.
3-14. A downward force of 200 N acts simultaneously with a 500-N force directed to the left. Use the polygon method to find the resultant force.
Chose scale, measure: R = 539 N, φ = 21.80 S. of E.

3-15. The following three forces act simultaneously on the same object. A = 300 N, 300 N of E; B = 600 N,2700; and C = 100 N due east. Find the resultant force
using the polygon method. Choose a scale, draw and measure: R = 576 N, φ = 51.40 S of E
3-16. A boat travels west a distance of 200 m, then north for 400 m, and finally 100 m at 300 S of E. What is the net displacement? (Set 1 cm = 100 N)
Draw and measure: R = 368 N, ( = 108.00

3-17. Two ropes Aand B are attached to a mooring hook so that an angle o 60 exists between the two ropes. The tension in rope A is 80 lb and the tension in rope B is 120 lb. Use the parallelogram method to find the resultant force on the hook.
Draw and measure: R = 174 lb

3-18. Two forces A and B act on the same object producing a resultant force of 50 lb at 36.90 N of W. The force A = 40 lb...
