Question

A plane is capable of flying at a speed of 180 km/h in still air. The pilot takes off from an airfield and heads due north according to the planes compass. After 30 mins of flight time, the pilot notices that, due to the wind the plane has actually traveled 80km at an angle of 5 degrees east of north. What is the wind's velocity vector? Make a diagram, show step by step clearly and the reasoning of each step.

Answer #1

Hope this will help you to get the problem if you have any questions please feel free to ask.

Thank you!

A 143-g baseball is flying through the air with a speed of 180
km/hr just after it is hit by a bat. If its velocity is at an angle
of 37º above the horizontal and 22º north of east, find its
momentum in unit-vector notation. Define east as +x and north as
+y.

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)?

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...

an airplane maintains a speed of 609 km/h relative to
the air flying through as it makes a trip to a city 752 km away to
the north.
a) what time interval is required for the trip if the plane flies
through a headwind blowing at 32.7 km/h towards south?
b) what time interval is required if there is a tailwind with the
same speed?
c) what time interval is required if there is a crosswind blowing
at 32.7km/h to...

4. A pilot flying from Honolulu to California flies at an
airspeed of 300.0 m/s (“airspeed” = airplane’s speed through the
surrounding air) with her airplane pointed 70.0˚ to the east of
north. However, the air itself is moving with a 50.0-m/s windspeed
blowing due east. When the pilot adds together the two vectors of
her airspeed and the windspeed, she gets her groundspeed: the
airplane’s actual velocity relative to the ground below. (Even
though these are called “speeds” by...

A plane is flying at a velocity of 529km/h [W23.2◦S](also known
as23.2◦Sof W)relative to the air (that is, if the air was still).
However,the wind is blowing at 103km/h [W]. a)Draw a labelled
vector diagram showing how to add the two velocity vectors. (3

???ALASKA AIRLINES: NAVIGATING CHANGE
In the autumn of 2007, Alaska Airlines executives adjourned at
the end of a long and stressful day in the
midst of a multi-day strategic planning session. Most headed
outside to relax, unwind and enjoy a bonfire
