Question

An airplane heading due north at 500 km/h encounters a wind with
a speed of 65 km/h blowing **from** [N60°E]. Determine
the resultant ground velocity of the plane.

PLEASE STATE VELOCITY WITH DIRECTION (AND ANGLE)

Answer #1

An airplane is heading due south at a speed of 688 km/h If a
wind begins blowing from the southwest at a speed of 90 km/h
(average), calculate: (a) the velocity (magnitude and
direction) of the plane relative to the ground, and (b)
how far from its intended position will it be after 11.0 min if the
pilot takes no corrective action. [Hint: First draw a
diagram.]
(a) VP,G = 628 km/h (b) Dx = 16.5 km these
are the answers...

An airplane is heading due south at a speed of 662 km/h . A wind
begins blowing from the southwest at a speed of 80 km/h (average).
In what direction should the pilot aim the plane so that it will
fly due south? Express your answer to three significant figures and
include the appropriate units.

An airplane flies due north with an air speed of260 km/h . A
steady wind at 65 km/h blows eastward. (Air speed is the speed
relative to the air.)
What is the plane’s ground speed (vpg)?
If the pilot wants to fly due north, what should his heading
be?

QUESTION 3 An airplane flying at a speed of 600 km / h
to the north is held by a wind blowing at a speed of 50 km / h from
the north-east direction. What should be the speed and direction of
the plane to go in the same direction (north)?

An airplane heads due west at a speed 150 km/h relative to the
wind. If the wind is moving
at 30 km/h toward the north, what is the speed of the airplane
relative to the ground?
A jet airliner moving initially at 300 mi/h due east enters a
region where the wind is blowing at
100 mi/h in a direction 30◦ north of east. What is the speed of
the aircraft relative to the ground?
A certain river is 0.5...

An airplane with an airspeed of 600 km/h needs to be on a course
35.0 north of east. A steady wind of 100 km/h is blowing FROM the
north. Determine the direction the plane should head.

A plane is heading due north and climbing at the rate of 100
km/hr. If its airspeed is 470 km/hr and there is a wind blowing 120
km/hr to the northwest, what is the ground speed of the plane?

An airplane flies due west at 120 km/h. At the same
time, the wind blows it due north at 40.0 km/h. What is the plane's
resultant velocity?
Use Trigonometry on solving the problem.

An airplane with a ground speed of 550 km/hr travels along a
heading of 30 degrees N of W. At that high altitude there is a
powerful 210 km/hr wind (known as the jet stream) 40 degrees south
of west. Determine the direction that the pilot is aiming the
plane.
The answer key says that the pilot must point 52.4 degrees
NofW.

A light plane attains an airspeed of 500 km/h. The pilot sets
out for a destination 780 km due north but discovers that the plane
must be headed 19.0° east of due north to fly there directly. The
plane arrives in 2.00 h. What were the (a)
magnitude and (b) direction of the wind velocity?
Give the direction as an angle relative to due west, where north of
west is a positive angle, and south of west is a negative...
