Solution: A man pushing a mop across a floor causes it to undergo two displacements. The first has a magnitude of 150 cm and makes an angle of 120° with the positive x-axis. The resultant displacement has a magnitude of 140 cm and is directed at an angle of 35.0° to the positive x-axis. Find the magnitude and direction of the second displacement.
