```Warm-up
Find the height of the wall to which the
Objective
TLW identify appropriate coordinate systems for solving
problems with vectors, apply the Pythagorean theorem
and tangent functions to calculate the magnitude and
direction of a resultant vector.
Today
• Outline
• Practice Problems
– Diagram skills
– Pythagorean Theorem WS
Objective
• TLW resolve vectors into components using
the sine and cosine functions and add vectors
that are perpendicular
Sample Problem A
• An archaeologist climbs the Great Pyramid in
Giza, Egypt. The pyramid’s height is 136m and
its width is 2.30x 102m. What is the magnitude
and the direction of the displacement of the
archaeologist after she has climbed from the
bottom of the pyramid to the top?

Section Review #2-4 pg. 94
• Objective: TLW resolve vectors into components
using the sine and cosine functions and add
vectors that are not perpendicular.
Sample Problem C
• A hiker walks 27.0 km from her base camp at
35 deg south of east. The next day she walks
41.0 km in a direction 65 deg north of east
and discovers a forest ranger’s tower. Find the
magnitude and direction of her resultant
displacement between the base camp and
tower.
