The distance between bases on a professional baseball diamond is 27.4m. Amy is the batter and gets a hit. She runs due west to first base then turns due south and runs to second base where she stops. Determine the displacement of second base relative to home plate.

the bases are at the corners of a square. ergo, the angle between the adjacent base lines is 90 degrees ... a right angle. please apply what you learned in call or the text to derive the answer -- which is 27.4 times the square root of 2 [1.414 is close enough for that] -- grampa
