Solution: A plumber steps out of his truck, walks 66 m east and 35 m south, and then takes an elevator 12 m into the subbasement of a building where a bad leak is occurring.What is the displacement of the plumber relative to his truck? Give your answer in components. Assume exttip{x}{x} is east, exttip{y}{y} is north, and exttip{z}{z} is up.What is the magnitude of the displacement?Give the angle, with respect to the exttip{x}{x} axis, in the vertical plane. Assume exttip{x}{x} is east.Give the angle, with respect to the exttip{x}{x} axis, in the horizontal plane. Assume exttip{x}{x} is east.

Problem

A plumber steps out of his truck, walks 66 m east and 35 m south, and then takes an elevator 12 m into the subbasement of a building where a bad leak is occurring.

What is the displacement of the plumber relative to his truck? Give your answer in components. Assume is east, is north, and is up.

What is the magnitude of the displacement?

Give the angle, with respect to the axis, in the vertical plane. Assume is east.

Give the angle, with respect to the axis, in the horizontal plane. Assume is east.
