A particle undergoes three successive displacements in a plane, as follows: d1, 5.47 m southwest; then d2, 5.92 m east; and finally d3, 5.04 m in a direction 52.0degrees north of east. Choose a coordinate system with the y axis pointing north and the x axis pointing east.

What are (a) the x component and (b) the y component of d1?

What are (c) the x component and (d) the y component of d2?

What are (e) the x component and (f) the y component of d3?

What are (g) the x component, (h) the y component, and (i) the magnitude of the particle's net displacement?

(j) If the particle is to return directly to the starting point, how far should it move?
