1.4.1 Bearings In the following subsections, we apply the vector ideas
introduced so far to displacements and velocities. The
examples will feature directions referred to points of the compass,
known as bearings. The direction of Leeds relative to Bristol can be described
as ‘15° to the East of due North’,
or N 15° E. This is an instance of a
bearing. Directions on the ground are typically given like
this, in terms of the directions North (N),
South (S), East (E)
