Question

An ant walks on a piece of graph paper straight along the x axis a distance of 10.0 cm in 2.20s. It then turns left 30.0 degrees and walks in a straight line another 10.0 cm in 1.90s. Finally, it turns another 70.0 degrees to the left and walks another 10.0 cm in 1.40s.

Determine the y component of the ant's average velocity.
