Question

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) V_{P,G} = 628 km/h (b) Dx = 16.5 km these
are the answers I need the prosses.

Answer #1

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 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)

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?

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.

An airplane with a ground speed of 550 km/hr travels along a

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.)
the answer key...

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...

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 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 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...

Consider an airplane flying at a constant speed of 900 km>h,
10 km above the ground. (a) What is the plane’s downward
acceleration? (b) Draw a free-body diagram for the airplane. (c)
Why don’t people in the airplane feel weightless as astronauts do
traveling 290 km higher up?
