Worksheet: Resultant Motion and Force

In this worksheet, we will practice representing motion in directions that are at right angles to each other as motion in one direction.


A length of road stretches north for 10 km from the edge of a town to where it intersects an eastward road. A car is broken down on the eastward road, and the displacement of the edge of the town from the car has a magnitude of 24 km. How far east of the intersection is the car, to the nearest kilometer?


Point 𝐴 is located 8 m horizontally from the base of the wall of a house, and point 𝐵 is located 6 m vertically above the base of the wall, as shown in the diagram. What is the magnitude of the displacement from point 𝐴 to point 𝐵 ?
