Question

You fly 32.0 km in a straight line in still air in the
direction 35.0º south of west. (a) Find the distances you
would have to fly straight south and then straight west to
arrive at the same point. (This determination is equivalent to
finding the components of the displacement along the south
and west directions.) (b) Find the distances you would have to
fly first in a direction 45.0º south of west and then in a
direction 45.0º west of north. These are the components of
the displacement along a different set of axes—one rotated
45º
