A bird flies from northern Alberta to northern Saskatchewan. The displacement is [E 7.5° S]. Then it flies to Big Quill Lake, displacement?

displacement 400km [E 51° S]. The total time of flight is 18h. 

Find total displacement and total distance traveled. 

Find the average speed and average velocity.

How do I find distance from displacement?


Big Quill Lake is also in Saskatchewan.

Update 2:

For the first flight the bird makes, the displacement is 800km [E 7.5° S]

    You draw all the displacements made end-to-end and you find how far the final position is from the initial position to find displacement.

    The total distance traveled, is, unsurprisingly, the sum of the distances traveled.

    In [E 7.5° S], the distance is missing.
