ANSWERED A golf ball lies 2.00 m directly south of the hole on a levelgreen. On the first putt, the ball travels 3.00 m along astraight-line path at an angle of 5 degrees east of north; on thesecond putt, it travels a straight-line distance of 1.20 m at anangle of 6 degrees south of west.
What would be the displacement ofa third putt that would put the ball in the hole?
The answer in the back of the book is 1.3 m at 43 degreessouth of east. How do I get that? 2021-05-07

Add the vector components of the putts:
On the firstputt $$x_1$$= 3 m * $$\displaystyle{\sin{{\left({5}\right)}}}$$= .26m and $$y_1$$ = 3m * $$\displaystyle{\cos{{\left({5}\right)}}}$$ = 2.989 m
on the second putt $$x_2$$ = 1.2 m *$$\displaystyle{\cos{{\left({186}\right)}}}$$ = -1.19 m and $$y_2$$ = 1.2 m * $$\displaystyle{\sin{{\left({186}\right)}}}$$ = -1.25 m
The resulting components are X = -.93 m and Y = 2.864 m
Since the hole originally was at 2 m N the Y component of theball from the hole is .864 m
So the resultant distance to the hole - $$\displaystyle{\left(-{.93}^{{{2}}}+{.864}^{{{2}}}\right)}^{{\frac{{1}}{{2}}}}={1.27}{m}$$
Also, the ball is .93 m W of the hole and .864 m N of the holeand tan = .864 / .93
and = 42.9 deg
