Textbook Problem

A quarterback takes the ball from the line of scrimmage, runs backwards for 10.0 yards, and then runs sideways parallel to the line of scrimmage for 15.0 yards. At this point, he throws a 50.0-yard forward pass straight downfield, perpendicular to the line of scrimmage. How far is the football from its original location?

To determine
The distance of the football from its original location.

Explanation

Given Info: The displacement of the football in backwards direction is 10yards , sideway direction is 15yards and along forwards direction is 50yards

Explanation:

Considering x and y coordinate, the net displacement of football along x direction is,

x=15yards

The net displacement of football along y direction is,

y=(10yards)+(50yards)=40yards

Formula to calculate the final position of the football is,

R=(x2+y2)<
