1 Answer

Toolbox:
  • Displacement is a vector quantity.It has both magnitude and direction.
Step 1:
We are asked to represent graphically a displacement of 40km,$30^{\large\circ}$ east of length.
We know displacement is a vector quantity which has both magnitude and direction.
Clearly it is given in the above problem 40km,which represents its magnitude and 30$^{\large\circ}$ east which represents its length.
Step 2:
The above figure represents this clearly.
Vector $\overrightarrow{OP}$ now represents the displacement of 40km,$30^{\large\circ}$ east of length.
