Step 1

Given information:

Displacement of the superhero (d) = 118 m

Angle made by the displacement vector with x-axis (θ) = -260

(Note: - “-ve” sign indicate the angle is measured in clock-wise direction)

Step 2

The x-component of the displacement is given by:

x = dcosθ = 118 × cos (-260) = 106.05 m.

The y-component of the displacement is given by:

y = dsinθ = ...
