# Vector Kinematics

If you're in an Airbus 320 cruising at 600 mph, with a 150 mph crosswind, chances are you won't have a strong WiFi signal. Learn vector kinematics now, before you fly.

A boy walks \(8 \text{ km} \) west, then \( 3 \text{ km} \) south, and then \( 3 \text{ km} \) east. Determine his net displacement.

Let \( +\hat{i} \) be the unit vector for east, and \( +\hat{j}\) be that for north.

A girl walks \(600 \text{ m} \) east, then \( 1 \text{ km} \) south, and then \( 5 \text{ km} \) east. Find her total displacement.

\( +\hat{i} \) is the unit vector for east, and \( +\hat{j}\) is that for north.
