In an assembly operation, a robot moves an object first straight upwards and then to the east, around an arc forming on quarter of a circle of radius 4.80 that lies in an east-west vertical plane. The robot then moves the object upward and to the north, through a quarter of a circle of radius 3.70 cm that lies in a north south vertical plane. Find a) the magnitude of the total displacement of the object, and b) the angle the total displacement makes with the vertical.
