Answer:

156.28m

Explanation:

Given;

His displacement is 900 m 80° North of west

Let North and South represent y axis and west east represent axis.

the x component of his displacement vector can be written as;

dx = dcosθ

Where d is the resultant displacement = 900m

θ is the angle with the x axis = 80°

Substituting the values;

dx = 900cos80°

dx = 156.2833599002 m

dx = 156.28 m

the x component of his displacement vector is 156.28m
