Question

A plumber steps out of his truck, walks $66 \mathrm{~m}$ east and $35 \mathrm{~m}$ south, and then takes an elevator $12 \mathrm{~m}$ 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; also give the magnitude and angles, with respect to the $x$ axis, in the vertical and horizontal plane. Assume $x$ is east, $y$ is north, and $z$ is up.

Step 1

1 of 7Data known from the problem:

$x=66\hspace{1mm}\text{m}$

$y=35\hspace{1mm}\text{m}$

$z=12\hspace{1mm}\text{m}$

We need to find vector of displacement $\vec r$, magnitude of that vector and angles with respect to the x axis, in the vertical and horizontal plane.
