If a football player positioned on the scrimmage line runs straight downfield for 26 yards and then cuts to his left for 6.0 yards to receive a pass, what is the football player's total displacement ...
... from the scrimmage line? (Use trigonometry to answer, but remember to draw a diagram to help your understanding.) Give both the magnitude and the angle in your answer.
26.68 yards 13deg is the football player's total displacement from the scrimmage line. Solution: tanT=6/26; T=tan^-1(6/26); T=12.99 or 13 deg; cosT=a/h; h=a/cosT; h=26/cos(13); h=26.68
