Question

Suppose you walk 18.0 m straight west and then 25.0 m straight north. How far are you from your starting point, and what is the compass direction of a line connecting your starting point to your final position? (If you represent the two legs of the walk as vector displacements $\vec{A}$ and $\vec{B}$ , as in
Figure 3.55, then this problem asks you to find their sum $\vec{R} = \vec{A} + \vec{B}$ .)
