Question

A plane takes off from an airport and flies to town A,
located

d1 = 285 km

from the airport in the direction 20.0° north of east. The
plane then flies to town B, located

d2 = 220 km

at 30.0° west of north from town A. Use graphical methods to
determine the distance and direction from town B to the airport.
(Enter the distance in km and the direction in degrees south of
west.)

distance

direction

Answer #1

A plane flies from a base a distance 280 km at a
direction of 10.0° north of east for 2 hours and then flies 190 km
30.0° west of north for 1 hour. The magnitude and direction of the
plane displacement at the end of this trip are:

a) A roller coaster moves 200 ft horizontally and then rises 135
ft at an angle of 30.0° above the horizontal. Next, it travels 135
ft at an angle of 40.0° below the horizontal. Use graphical
techniques to find the roller coaster's displacement from its
starting point at the end of this movement.
b) A plane flies from base camp to lake A, a distance of 280 km
at a direction of 20.0° north of east. After dropping off supplies,...

An airplane undergoes the following displacements: First, it
flies 45 km in a direction 30° east of north. Next, it flies 76 km
due south. Finally, it flies 100 km 30° north of west.
A) Using analytical methods, determine how far the airplane ends
up from its starting point.

One airplane is approaching an airport from the north at 201
km/hr. A second airplane approaches from the East at 220 km/hr.
Find the rate at which the distance between the plane changes when
the southbound plane is 36 km away from the airport and the
westbound plane is 20 km from the airport

An airplane takes off and heads for a destination that is 673 km
away in a direction 72.0° North of West. In order to avoid a
storms, the airplane initially flies 128 km at 7.0° East of North
before changing direction and heading straight to the final
destination. How far and in which direction should the airplane fly
during the second leg of its trip in order to reach its final
destination safely?

An airplane leaves an airport and flies due west 150 miles and
then 230 miles in the direction S 39.67 degrees W.
a) Determine how far the plane is from the airport
b) Determine the bearing that the pilot would need to follow to
return directly to the airport

(1 point) A man wishes to row the shortest possible distance
from north to south across a river which is flowing at 5 km/hr from
the east. He can row at 6 km/hr.
(a) In which direction should he steer? At an angle (in degrees)
_________ east of south.
b) Suppose that when the man is in the middle of the river, a
wind of 15 km/hr from the southwest starts. In which direction
should he steer to move straight...

An aeroplane takes off from a sea-level airport and reaches a
cruising altitude of 10km, after travelling for 100km in a
north-easterly direction and 100km in an easterly direction. Find
the magnitude and (3-dimensional) direction of the displacement
vector of the aeroplane.

A ferry transports tourists among three islands. It sails from
the first island to the second island, 5.84 km away, in a direction
37.0° north of east. It then sails from the second island to the
third island in a direction 73.5° west of north. Finally, it
returns to the first island, sailing in a direction 28.0° east of
south. (a) Calculate the distance between the second and third
islands. km (b) Calculate the distance between the first and third...

Canadian geese migrate essentially along a north-south direction
for well over a thousand kilometers in some cases, traveling at
speeds up to about 100 km/h. One such bird is flying at 100 km/h
relative to the air, but there is a 30.0 km/h wind blowing from
west to east.
PART A : At what angle relative to the north-south direction
should this bird head so that it will be traveling directly
southward relative to the ground?
PART B: How long...
