Solved Example Problems for Position Vector

### EXAMPLE 2.13

Determine the position vectors for the following particles which are located at points P, Q, R, S. ### Example 2.14

A person initially at rest starts to walk 2 m towards north, then 1 m towards east, then 5 m towards south and then 3 m towards west. What is the position vector of the person at the end of the trip?

Solution

As shown in the Figure, the positive x axis is taken as east direction, positive y direction is taken as north. After the trip, the person reaches the point P whose position vector given by The displacement direction is south west.
