A mountain climber hikes 25.5 km from her base camp, going 20.0º north of east. On the second day, she walks 41.0 km in a direction 65.0º north of east, at which point she has reached a summit. Determine the magnitude and direction of her resultant displacement between the base camp and the second camp.
