1. The velocity relative to the ground has a
magnitude equivalent to the hypotenuse of a
triangle with sides 800 and 100. So, by the
Pythagorean theorem we can find the magnitude of
the velocity.

## a. The resultant is equivalent in magnitude to the

hypotenuse, h, of the triangle with 5 and 12 as sides
12

## and is directed northeast at an angle of sin21 h .

Thus, the resultant is "52 1 122 5 13 N at an angle
of sin21 12
13 5 N 22.6 E. The equlibrant is equal in
magnitude and opposite in direction of the resultant.
Thus, the equilibrant is 13 N at an angle of S 22.6 W.
b. The resultant is "92 1 122 5 15 N at an angle of
sin21 12
15 5 S 36.9 W. The equilibrant, then, is 15 N
at N 36.9 E.
6. For three forces to form equilibrium, they must
be able to form a triangle or a balanced line, so
a. Yes, since 3 1 4 . 7 these can form a triangle.
b. Yes, since 9 1 40 . 41 these can form a triangle.
c. No, since "5 1 6 , 9 these cannot form a
triangle.
d. Yes, since 9 1 10 5 19, placing the 9 N and 10 N
force in a line directly opposing the 19 N force
achieves equilibrium.

## 7. Arms 90 cm apart will yield a resultant with a

smaller magnitude than at 30 cm apart. A resultant
with a smaller magnitude means less force to
counter your weight, hence a harder chin-up.

So the force 15 from the 10 N force is 9.66 N and
the force perpendicular to it is 2.59 N.
10. The force of the block is
(10 kg)(9.8 N>kg) 5 98 N. The component of this
force parallel to the ramp is
(98) sin 30 5 (98)A 12 B 5 49 N, directed down the
ramp. So the force preventing this block from
moving would be 49 N directed up the ramp.

## This is the angle between the vectors when placed

head to tail. So the angle between the vectors when
placed tail to tail is 180 2 120 5 60.
12. The 10 N force and the 5 N force result in a 5 N
force east. The 9 N force and the 14 N force result
in a 5 N force south. The resultant of these is now
equivalent to the hypotenuse of the right triangle
with 5 N as both bases and is directed 45 south of
east. So the resultant is "52 1 52 5 "50 8 7.1 N
45 south of east.
13.

## Let T1 be the tension in the 30 rope and T2 be the

tension in the 45 rope.
Since this system is in equilibrium, we know that
the horizontal components of T1 and T2 are equal
and opposite and the vertical components add to be
opposite the action of the mass. Also, the force
produced by the mass is (20 kg)(9.8 N>kg) 5 196 N.
So we have a system of two equations: the first,
(T1 ) cos 30 5 (T2 ) cos 45 represents the balance
of the horizontal components, and the second,
(T1 ) sin 30 1 (T2 ) sin 45 5 196 represents the
balance of the vertical components with the mass.
So solving this system of two equations with two
variable gives the desired tensions.

## First, use the Cosine Law to find the angles the

A keen eye could have recognized this triangle as a

theorem as well. Now we set up the same system of
equations as in problem 16, with T1 being the tension
in the 32 cm string and T2 being the tension in the
24 cm string, and the force of the mass being
(5 kg)(9.8 N>kg) 5 49 N.

## (Port means left and starboard means right.) We are

looking for the resultant of these two force vectors
that are 35 apart. We dont know the exact value
of the force, so we will call it x. So the small tug
is pulling with a force of x and the large tug is
pulling with a force of 2x. To find the magnitude
of the resultant, r, in terms of x, we use the cosine
law.

Since the equilibrant is equal in magnitude to the

b. To find each angle, use the definition of cosine
with respect each force as a leg and the resultant as
the hypotenuse. Let u5N be the angle from the
5 N force to the resultant, u8N be the angle from the
8 N force to the resultant, and u10N be the angle
from the 10 N force to the resultant.
Let the sign of the resultant be negative, since it is
in a direction away from the head of each of the
given forces.

## 7.2 Velocity, pp. 367370

1. a. Both the woman and the trains velocities are
in the same direction, so we add them.
80 km>h 1 4 km>h 5 84 km>h
b. The womans velocity is directed opposite that of
train, so we subtract her velocity from the trains.
80 km>h 2 4 km>h 5 76 km>h. The resultant is in
the same direction as the trains movement.
2. a. The velocity of the wind is directed opposite that
of the airplane, so we subtract the winds velocity
from the airplanes.
600 km>h 2 100 km>h 5 500 km>h north.
b. Both the wind and the airplanes velocities are in
the same direction, so we add them.
600 km>h 1 100 km>h 5 700 km>h north.
3. We use the Pythagorean theorem to find the
magnitude, m, of the resultant velocity and we use
the definition of sine to find the angle, u, made.

## 4. Adam must swim at an angle, u, upstream so as

to counter the 1 km> h velocity of the stream. This is
equivalent to Adam swimming along the hypotenuse
of a right traingle with 1 km> h leg and a 2 km> h
hypotenuse. So the angle is found using the definition

the direction of the current. This results in a net of
22.6 1 15 5 37.6, or N 37.6 W.
7. a. First we find the components of the resultant
directed north and directed west. The component
directed north is the velocity of the airplane, 800,
minus 100 sin 45, since the wind forms a 45
angle south of west. The western component of
the resultant is simply 100 cos 45. So we use the
Pythagorean theorem to find the magnitude, m, of
the resultant and the definition of sine to find the
angle, u, of the resultant.

732.71 km> h, so in 1 hour the airplane will travel
8. a. First we find the velocity of the airplane. We
use the Pythagorean theorem to find the magnitude,
m, of the resultant.
m 2 5 4502 1 1002
5 202 500 1 10 000
5 212 500
m 5 "212 500
8 461 km>h
So in 3 hours, the airplane will travel about
(461 km>h)(3 h) 5 1383 km.
b. To find the angle, u, the airplane travels, we use
the definition of sine.
100
sin u 5
461
100
u 5 sin21
461
8 12.5 east of north.
9. a. To find the angle, u, at which to fly is the
equivalent of the angle of a right triangle with 44 as
the opposite leg and 244 as the hypotenuse. So we
use the definition of sine to find this angle.
44
sin u 5
244

u 5 sin21

8 10.4 south of west.
b. By the Pythagorean Theorem, the resultant ground
speed of the airplane is "(2442 2 442 ) 5 240 km>h.
Since time 5 distance>rate, the duration of the
flight is simply (480 km)> (240 km>h) 5 2 h.
10. a. Since Judy is swimming perpendicular to
the flow of the river, her resultant velocity is simply
the hypotenuse of a right triangle with 3 and 4 as
bases, which is a 3-4-5 right triangle. Thus, Judys
resultant velocity is 5 km> h. The direction is
determined by tan u 5 43. u 8 53.1 downstream
b. Judys distance traveled down the river would be the
4 leg of the 3-4-5 triangle formed by the vectors, but
scaled down so that 1m (the width of the river) is
equivalent to the 3 leg. So her distance traveled is
4
3 8 1.33 km. This makes her about 0.67 km from
Helens cottage.
c. While in the river, Judy is swimming at
5 km> h for a distance of 53 km. Since
time 5 distance>rate, her time taken is
5
3 km
5 1 hours 5 20 minutes.

## a. and b. Here, 205 km> h directed 30 north of east

is the resultant of 212 km> h directed east, and the
wind speed, v, directed at some angle. This problem
is more easily approached finding the wind speed,
v, first. So we will do that using the cosine law.
v 2 5 2052 1 2122 2 2(205)(212) cos 30
5 42 025 1 44 944 2 86 920 cos 30
5 86 969 2 75 275
5 11 694
v 5 "11 694
8 108 km>h
Now to find the winds direction, we simply find the
angle supplementary to the lesser angle, u, formed
by the parallelogram of these three velocities. We
can use the sine law for this.
sin u
sin 30

sin u 5 205a
b

Thus, the direction of v is the angle supplementary
to u in the parallelogram:
180 2 71.6 5 108.4 5 18.4 west of north.
12.

## Since her swimming speed is a maximum of 4 km> h,

this is her maximum resultant magnitude, which is
also the hypotenuse of the triangle formed by her and
the rivers velocity vector. Since one of these legs is
5 km> h, we have a triangle with a leg larger than its
hypotenuse, which is impossible.
13. a. First we need to find Marys resultant
velocity, v. Since this resultant is the diagonal of the
parallelogram formed by hers and the rivers
velocity, we can use the cosine law with the angle, u,
7-8

## v 2 5 32 1 42 2 2(3)(4) cos 150

5 45.8
v 5 "45.8
8 6.8 m>s
So in 10 seconds, Mary travels about
(6.8 m>s)(10 s) 5 68 m.
b. Since Mary is travelling at 3 m>s at an angle of 30,
to find the component of her velocity, v, perpendicular
to the current, we use the definition of sine.
v 5 3 sin 30

5 3a b

5 1.5 m>s perpendicular to the current.
So since time 5 distance>rate, the time taken is
(150 m)> (1.5 m>s) 5 100 s.
14. a. So we have a 5.5 m> s vector and a 4 m> s
vector with a resultant vector that is directed 45
south of west. Letting u be the angle between the
4 km> h vector and the resultant, we can construct
a parallelogram using these three vectors and a
subsequent triangle with u opposite the 5.5 m> s
vector and 45 opposite the 4 m> s vector. We now
use the sine law to find u.

8 76.5 from the resultant.
Since the resultant is 45 west of south, Daves
direction is 76.5 1 45 5 121.5 west of south,
which is equivalent to about 180 2 121.5 5 58.5
upstream.
b. First, we find the magnitude, m, of Daves 4 m> s
velocity in the direction perpendicular to the river.
This is done using the definition of sine.
m 5 4 sin 58.5
8 3.41 m>s perpendicular to the river.
Since time is distance>rate, we have
(200 m)> (3.41 m>s) 8 58.6 s.
15. Let b represent the speed of the steamboat and c
represent the speed of the current. On the way
downstream, the effective speed is b 1 c, and
upstream is b 2 c. The distance upstream and
downstream is the same, so 5(b 1 c) 5 7(b 2 c).
So, b 5 6c. This means that the speed of the boat
is 6 times the speed of the current. So, (6c 1 c) ? 5
Chapter 7: Applications of Vectors

## or 35c is the distance. This means that it would take

a raft 35 hours moving with the speed of the current
to get from A to B.

Therefore (0, 0, 1) is perpendicular to every vector

Therefore (0, 1, 0) is perpendicular to every vector
in the xz-plane.

e 5 (0, e2, e3 ). Let f 5 (1, 0, 0).

Therefore (1, 0, 0) is perpendicular to every vector

b. If any of the vectors were collinear then one
would be a scalar multiple of the other. Comparing
the signs of the individual components of each
vector eliminates (1, 2, 21) and ( 5, 23, 2 56) . All of
the components of (24, 25, 26) have the same
sign and the same is true for (4, 3, 10), but (4, 3, 10)
is not a scalar multiple of (24, 25, 26). Therefore
none of the vectors are collinear.
5. a. Using the strategy of Example 5 yields
(x, y) ? (1, 22) 5 0 and (x, y) ? (1, 1) 5 0
x 2 2y 5 0 and x 1 y 5 0
3y 5 0
Therefore the only result is x 5 y 5 0, or (0, 0).
This is because (1, 22) and (1, 1) both lie on the
xy-plane and are not collinear, so any vector that is
perpendicular to both vectors must be in R 3 which
does not exist in R 2.
b. If we select any two vectors that are not collinear
in R 2, then any vector that is perpendicular to both
cannot be in R 2 and must be in R 3. This is not
possible since R 3 does
not exist in R 2.

## Let T1 be the tension in the 15 cm cord and T2 be

the tension in the 20 cm cord. Let u1 be the angle
the 15 cm cord makes with the ceiling and u2 be the
angle the 20 cm cord makes with the ceiling. By the
cosine law:
(15)2 5 (20)2 1 (25)2 2 2(20)(25) cos (u2 )
cos (u2 ) 5 0.8

## sin (u2 ) 5 "1 2 cos2 (u2 )

sin (u2 ) 5 0.6
(20)2 5 (15)2 1 (25)2 2 (2)(15)(25) cos (u1 )
cos (u1 ) 5 0.6
sin (u1 ) 5 0.8
Horizontal Components:

T2 5 (0.75)T1
Vertical Components:

(0.8)T1 1 (0.6)(0.75)T1 5 147
(1.25)T1 5 147
T1 5 117.6 N
T2 5 (0.75)T1
T2 5 88.2 N
Therefore the tension in the 15 cm cord is 117.60 N
and the tension in the 20 cm cord is 88.20 N.

## In triangle DEF, we use the cosine law:

>

The equilibrant force is equal in magnitude and
opposite in direction to the resultant force, so both
forces have a magnitude of 78.10 N. The resultant
makes an angle 33.7 to the 40 N force and 26.3 to
the 50 N force. The equilibrant makes an angle 146.3
to the 40 N force and 153.7 to the 50 N force.

## Since the airplanes velocity is perpendicular to the

wind, the resultants magnitude is given by the
Pythagorean theorem:
>

The angle is determined using the tangent ratio:

/EDF 8 5.7
Thus, the resultant velocity is 1004.99 km> h,
N 5.7 W (or W 84.3 N).

stream, so the total time he will paddle is:

t5

t 5 80 s
The current is flowing 1.2 m> s downstream, so the
distance that the canoeist travels downstream is:
d 5 rcurrent 3 t
d 5 (1.2 m>s)(80 s)
d 5 96 m
So, the canoeist will drift 96 m south.
b. In order to arrive directly across stream, the
canoeist must take into account the change in his
velocity caused by the current. That is, he must
initially paddle upstream in a direction such that
the resultant velocity is directed straight across
the stream. The resultant velocity:
E
2.5 m/s
D

7-32

## Since the resultant velocity is perpendicular to the

current, the direction in which the canoeist should
head is determined by the sine ratio.

The canoeist should head 28.7 upstream.

## a. The resultant is equivalent in magnitude to the

hypotenuse, h, of the triangle with 5 and 12 as sides
12

## and is directed northeast at an angle of sin21 h .

Thus, the resultant is "52 1 122 5 13 N at an angle
of sin21 12
13 5 N 22.6 E. The equlibrant is equal in
magnitude and opposite in direction of the resultant.
Thus, the equilibrant is 13 N at an angle of S 22.6 W.
b. The resultant is "92 1 122 5 15 N at an angle of
sin21 12
15 5 S 36.9 W. The equilibrant, then, is 15 N
at N 36.9 E.
6. For three forces to form equilibrium, they must
be able to form a triangle or a balanced line, so
a. Yes, since 3 1 4 . 7 these can form a triangle.
b. Yes, since 9 1 40 . 41 these can form a triangle.
c. No, since "5 1 6 , 9 these cannot form a
triangle.
d. Yes, since 9 1 10 5 19, placing the 9 N and 10 N
force in a line directly opposing the 19 N force
achieves equilibrium.

## 7. Arms 90 cm apart will yield a resultant with a

smaller magnitude than at 30 cm apart. A resultant
with a smaller magnitude means less force to
counter your weight, hence a harder chin-up.

So the force 15 from the 10 N force is 9.66 N and
the force perpendicular to it is 2.59 N.

(10 kg)(9.8 N>kg) 5 98 N. The component of this
force parallel to the ramp is
(98) sin 30 5 (98)A 12 B 5 49 N, directed down the

## This is the angle between the vectors when placed

12. The 10 N force and the 5 N force result in a 5 N
force east. The 9 N force and the 14 N force result
in a 5 N force south. The resultant of these is now
equivalent to the hypotenuse of the right triangle
with 5 N as both bases and is directed 45 south of
east. So the resultant is "52 1 52 5 "50 8 7.1 N

## Let T1 be the tension in the 30 rope and T2 be the

tension in the 45 rope.
Since this system is in equilibrium, we know that
the horizontal components of T1 and T2 are equal
and opposite and the vertical components add to be
opposite the action of the mass. Also, the force
produced by the mass is (20 kg)(9.8 N>kg) 5 196 N.
So we have a system of two equations: the first,
(T1 ) cos 30 5 (T2 ) cos 45 represents the balance
of the horizontal components, and the second,
(T1 ) sin 30 1 (T2 ) sin 45 5 196 represents the
balance of the vertical components with the mass.
So solving this system of two equations with two
variable gives the desired tensions.

A keen eye could have recognized this triangle as a

## (Port means left and starboard means right.) We are

## a. First we will find the resultant of the 5 N and

8 N forces. Use the Pythagorean theorem to find the
magnitude, m.
m 2 5 52 1 82
5 25 1 64
5 89
m 5 "89 8 9.4
Next we use the Pythagorean theorem again to find
the magnitude, M, of the resultant of this net force
and the 10 N force.
M 2 5 m 2 1 102
5 89 1 100
5 189
M 5 "189 8 13.75
Since the equilibrant is equal in magnitude to the
resultant, we have the magnitude of the equilibrant
equal to approximately 13.75 N.
b. To find each angle, use the definition of cosine
with respect each force as a leg and the resultant as
the hypotenuse. Let u5N be the angle from the
5 N force to the resultant, u8N be the angle from the
8 N force to the resultant, and u10N be the angle
from the 10 N force to the resultant.
Let the sign of the resultant be negative, since it is
in a direction away from the head of each of the
given forces.

## 4. Adam must swim at an angle, u, upstream so as

to counter the 1 km> h velocity of the stream. This is
equivalent to Adam swimming along the hypotenuse
of a right traingle with 1 km> h leg and a 2 km> h
hypotenuse. So the angle is found using the definition

8 22.6 from the direction of the boat toward
the direction of the current. This results in a net of
22.6 1 15 5 37.6, or N 37.6 W.
7. a. First we find the components of the resultant
directed north and directed west. The component
directed north is the velocity of the airplane, 800,
minus 100 sin 45, since the wind forms a 45
angle south of west. The western component of
the resultant is simply 100 cos 45. So we use the
Pythagorean theorem to find the magnitude, m, of
the resultant and the definition of sine to find the
angle, u, of the resultant.
m 2 5 (800 2 100 sin 45)2 1 (100 cos 45)2

Use the sine law to determine the direction.

The direction is N 5.5 W.

## b. The airplane is travelling at approximately

732.71 km> h, so in 1 hour the airplane will travel
8. a. First we find the velocity of the airplane. We
use the Pythagorean theorem to find the magnitude,
m, of the resultant.
m 2 5 4502 1 1002
5 202 500 1 10 000
5 212 500
m 5 "212 500
8 461 km>h
So in 3 hours, the airplane will travel about
(461 km>h)(3 h) 5 1383 km.
b. To find the angle, u, the airplane travels, we use
the definition of sine.

9. a. To find the angle, u, at which to fly is the
equivalent of the angle of a right triangle with 44 as
the opposite leg and 244 as the hypotenuse. So we
use the definition of sine to find this angle.

8 10.4 south of west.
b. By the Pythagorean Theorem, the resultant ground
speed of the airplane is "(2442 2 442 ) 5 240 km>h.
Since time 5 distance>rate, the duration of the
flight is simply (480 km)> (240 km>h) 5 2 h.
10. a. Since Judy is swimming perpendicular to
the flow of the river, her resultant velocity is simply
the hypotenuse of a right triangle with 3 and 4 as
bases, which is a 3-4-5 right triangle. Thus, Judys
resultant velocity is 5 km> h. The direction is
determined by tan u 5 43. u 8 53.1 downstream
b. Judys distance traveled down the river would be the
4 leg of the 3-4-5 triangle formed by the vectors, but
scaled down so that 1m (the width of the river) is
equivalent to the 3 leg. So her distance traveled is
4
3 8 1.33 km. This makes her about 0.67 km from
Helens cottage.
c. While in the river, Judy is swimming at
5 km> h for a distance of 53 km. Since
time 5 distance>rate, her time taken is
5
3 km
5 1 hours 5 20 minutes.

## a. and b. Here, 205 km> h directed 30 north of east

is the resultant of 212 km> h directed east, and the
wind speed, v, directed at some angle. This problem
is more easily approached finding the wind speed,
v, first. So we will do that using the cosine law.
v 2 5 2052 1 2122 2 2(205)(212) cos 30
5 42 025 1 44 944 2 86 920 cos 30
5 86 969 2 75 275
5 11 694
v 5 "11 694
8 108 km>h
Now to find the winds direction, we simply find the
angle supplementary to the lesser angle, u, formed
by the parallelogram of these three velocities. We
can use the sine law for this.
sin u

Thus, the direction of v is the angle supplementary
to u in the parallelogram:
180 2 71.6 5 108.4 5 18.4 west of north.
12.

## Since her swimming speed is a maximum of 4 km> h,

this is her maximum resultant magnitude, which is
also the hypotenuse of the triangle formed by her and
the rivers velocity vector. Since one of these legs is
5 km> h, we have a triangle with a leg larger than its
hypotenuse, which is impossible.
13. a. First we need to find Marys resultant
velocity, v. Since this resultant is the diagonal of the
parallelogram formed by hers and the rivers
velocity, we can use the cosine law with the angle, u,
7-8

v 5 "45.8
8 6.8 m>s
So in 10 seconds, Mary travels about
(6.8 m>s)(10 s) 5 68 m.
b. Since Mary is travelling at 3 m>s at an angle of 30,
to find the component of her velocity, v, perpendicular
to the current, we use the definition of sine.
v 5 3 sin 30

5 1.5 m>s perpendicular to the current.
So since time 5 distance>rate, the time taken is
(150 m)> (1.5 m>s) 5 100 s.
14. a. So we have a 5.5 m> s vector and a 4 m> s
vector with a resultant vector that is directed 45
south of west. Letting u be the angle between the
4 km> h vector and the resultant, we can construct
a parallelogram using these three vectors and a
subsequent triangle with u opposite the 5.5 m> s
vector and 45 opposite the 4 m> s vector. We now
use the sine law to find u.

8 76.5 from the resultant.
Since the resultant is 45 west of south, Daves
direction is 76.5 1 45 5 121.5 west of south,
which is equivalent to about 180 2 121.5 5 58.5
upstream.
b. First, we find the magnitude, m, of Daves 4 m> s
velocity in the direction perpendicular to the river.
This is done using the definition of sine.
m 5 4 sin 58.5
8 3.41 m>s perpendicular to the river.
Since time is distance>rate, we have
(200 m)> (3.41 m>s) 8 58.6 s.
15. Let b represent the speed of the steamboat and c
represent the speed of the current. On the way
downstream, the effective speed is b 1 c, and
upstream is b 2 c. The distance upstream and
downstream is the same, so 5(b 1 c) 5 7(b 2 c).
So, b 5 6c. This means that the speed of the boat
is 6 times the speed of the current. So, (6c 1 c) ? 5

## or 35c is the distance. This means that it would take

a raft 35 hours moving with the speed of the current
to get from A to B.

> >
a ? b 5 (0)(a1 ) 1 (0)(a2 ) 1 (0)(1)
50
Therefore (0, 0, 1) is perpendicular to every vector
in the xy-plane.
Any vector in the xz-plane
is of the form
>
>
c 5 (c1, 0, c3 ). Let d 5 (0, 1, 0).
> >
c ? d 5 (0)(c1 ) 1 (0)(1) 1 (0)(c3 )
50
Therefore (0, 1, 0) is perpendicular to every vector
in the xz-plane.

## Any vector in the yz-plane

is of the form
>
>
e 5 (0, e2, e3 ). Let f 5 (1, 0, 0).
> >
e ? f 5 (1)(0) 1 (0)(e2 ) 1 (0)(e3 )
50
Therefore (1, 0, 0) is perpendicular to every vector
in the yz-plane.

b. If any of the vectors were collinear then one
would be a scalar multiple of the other. Comparing
the signs of the individual components of each
vector eliminates (1, 2, 21) and ( 5, 23, 2 56) . All of
the components of (24, 25, 26) have the same
sign and the same is true for (4, 3, 10), but (4, 3, 10)
is not a scalar multiple of (24, 25, 26). Therefore
none of the vectors are collinear.
5. a. Using the strategy of Example 5 yields
(x, y) ? (1, 22) 5 0 and (x, y) ? (1, 1) 5 0
x 2 2y 5 0 and x 1 y 5 0
3y 5 0
Therefore the only result is x 5 y 5 0, or (0, 0).
This is because (1, 22) and (1, 1) both lie on the
xy-plane and are not collinear, so any vector that is
perpendicular to both vectors must be in R 3 which
does not exist in R 2.
b. If we select any two vectors that are not collinear
in R 2, then any vector that is perpendicular to both
cannot be in R 2 and must be in R 3. This is not
possible since R 3 does
not exist in R 2.

## Let T1 be the tension in the 15 cm cord and T2 be

the tension in the 20 cm cord. Let u1 be the angle
the 15 cm cord makes with the ceiling and u2 be the
angle the 20 cm cord makes with the ceiling. By the
cosine law:
(15)2 5 (20)2 1 (25)2 2 2(20)(25) cos (u2 )
cos (u2 ) 5 0.8

## sin (u2 ) 5 "1 2 cos2 (u2 )

sin (u2 ) 5 0.6
(20)2 5 (15)2 1 (25)2 2 (2)(15)(25) cos (u1 )
cos (u1 ) 5 0.6
sin (u1 ) 5 0.8
Horizontal Components:
2T1 cos (u1 ) 1 T2 cos (u2 ) 5 0
(0.8)T2 5 (0.6)T1
T2 5 (0.75)T1
Vertical Components:
T1 sin (u1 ) 1 T2 sin (u2 ) 2 (15)(9.8) 5 0
(0.8)T1 1 (0.6)(0.75)T1 5 147
(1.25)T1 5 147
T1 5 117.6 N
T2 5 (0.75)T1
T2 5 88.2 N
Therefore the tension in the 15 cm cord is 117.60 N
and the tension in the 20 cm cord is 88.20 N.

## b. The east- and west-pulling forces result in a force

of 5 N west. The north- and south-pulling forces
result in a force of 12 N north. The 5 N west and
12 N north forces result in a force pulling in the
north-westerly direction with a force of
"52 1 122 5 13 N,
by using the Pythagorean theorem. To find the exact
direction of this force, use the definition of sine.

the angle formed when they are placed head-to-tail
is 120. So the resultant, along with these two
vectors, forms an isosceles triangle with top angle
120 and two equal angles 30. By the cosine law,
the two equal forces satisfy

## In triangle DEF, we use the cosine law:

>
@ R @ 5 "402 1 502 2 2(40)(50) cos (120)

The equilibrant force is equal in magnitude and
opposite in direction to the resultant force, so both
forces have a magnitude of 78.10 N. The resultant
makes an angle 33.7 to the 40 N force and 26.3 to
the 50 N force. The equilibrant makes an angle 146.3
to the 40 N force and 153.7 to the 50 N force.

## Since the airplanes velocity is perpendicular to the

wind, the resultants magnitude is given by the
Pythagorean theorem:
>
@ R @ 5 "10002 1 1002
>
@ R @ 8 1004.99
The angle is determined using the tangent ratio:
100
tan /EDF 5

/EDF 8 5.7
Thus, the resultant velocity is 1004.99 km> h,
N 5.7 W (or W 84.3 N).

stream, so the total time he will paddle is:
d

rcanoeist
200 m
t5
2.5 m>s
t 5 80 s
The current is flowing 1.2 m> s downstream, so the
distance that the canoeist travels downstream is:
d 5 rcurrent 3 t
d 5 (1.2 m>s)(80 s)
d 5 96 m
So, the canoeist will drift 96 m south.
b. In order to arrive directly across stream, the
canoeist must take into account the change in his
velocity caused by the current. That is, he must
initially paddle upstream in a direction such that
the resultant velocity is directed straight across
the stream. The resultant velocity:
E
2.5 m/s
D

7-32

## Since the resultant velocity is perpendicular to the

current, the direction in which the canoeist should
head is determined by the sine ratio.
1.2
sin /EDF 5
2.5
/EDF 8 28.7
The canoeist should head 28.7 upstream.
