**Solving Force Using Vectors**

A 2000 lb car is parked stationary on a slope. The brake is applying a 600 lb force to keep it from sliding down. Determine the inclination of the slope.**Finding Displacement Using Vectors**

Kevin brings his dog to a park. He throws two balls for his dog to catch. The path of the first ball is described by the vector $v_1=130i+10j$ and that of the second ball is described by the vector $v_2=80i+(-40)j$ where the distances are all expressed in meters.**Evaluating Velocity Using Vectors**

Elaine can swim in still water (no current) with a speed of 5 m/s. She now goes swimming in a river which has a current flowing towards west with a speed of 2 m/s. Assuming her speed is the same,**Determining Displacement and Velocity Using Vectors**

A plane is travelling south with a speed of 140 km/h. Simultaneously, there is a steady wind blowing due west with a speed of 40 km/h.
