## Gujarat Board Textbook Solutions Class 12 Maths Chapter 10 Vector Algebra Ex 10.1

Question 1.
Represent graphically a displacement of 40 km, 30° east of north.
Solution:
A line segment of 2 cm is drawn on the right of OY making an angle of 30° with it.
OP = 40 km, scale 1 cm = 20 km.
Vector $$\overline{\mathrm{OP}}$$ represents displacement of 40 km, 30° east of north.  Question 2.

(i) 10 kg
(ii) 2 metres north-west
(iii) 40°
(iv) 40 watt
(v) 10-10 columb
(vi) 20 m/sec2
Solution:
Scalars:
(i) 10 kg
