Question

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.

Answer #1

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.)

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 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 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.

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.

An
airplane travels 187 km at 28 degrees N of E, then 259 km at 39
degrees W of S. What is the direction and magnitude of its total
displacement with respect to the original position?

A high altitude jet airplane has a velocity relative to the air
of 320 m/s due west. At a certain moment, the pilot notices a
mountain peak directly west of
the plane at a horizontal distance of 4.20 km. 10 s later, the
peak is observed to be a horizontal distance 4.18 km away in a
direction 17?north of west.
(a) Set up a coordinate system and given the components of the
displacement
vectors between the airplane and the mountain...

A jet is flying due north relative to the ground. The speed of
the jet relative to the ground is 155 m/s. The wind at the jet’s
altitude is 40.0 m/s toward the northeast (45.0∘∘ north of east).
Suppose that the +x-axis is directed eastward and the +y-axis is
directed northward. Find the speed of the jet relative to the air
(its airspeed). Find the direction in which the pilot of the jet
must point the plane so that it...
