Question

An airplane is headed on a bearing of 170° at an airspeed of 223 km per hr. A 58 km per hr wind is blowing from a direction of 210°.

Find the ground speed and resulting bearing of the plane.

Answer #1

The compass on an airplane indicates it is headed due east, and
the airspeed
indicator shows it is moving through the air at 450
km/hr
. The wind is blowing 120
km/hr
in
a direction 30° south of east.
(a) What is the velocity of the airplane rel
ative to the earth?
(b) In what direction should the pilot head for the plane to
travel due east? What will be the
airplane velocity relative to the earth?
Please explain to...

A plane has an airspeed of 136 km/h. It is flying on a bearing
of 81° while there is a 29 km/h wind out of the northeast (bearing
225°). What are the ground speed and the bearing of the
plane?

A plane is flying with an airspeed of 200 mph in the direction
of N 50°E and a 40 mi/hr wind is blowing directly from the west.
Approximate the true course(direction) and ground speed of the
airplane using vectors.

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 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)

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)?

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...

An airplane pilot sets a compass course due west and maintains
an airspeed of 218 km/h . After flying for a time of 0.500 h , she
finds herself over a town a distance 123 kmwest and a distance 17
km south of her starting point.
1. Find the magnitude of the wind velocity.
2. Find the direction of the wind velocity.
Express your answer as an angle measured south of west
3. If the wind velocity is 41 km/h...

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 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.
(I know this question has been asked already 3 times- but 2 of
the answers were wrong, and I couldnt understand the work for the
correct one.)
