Question

You are traveling on an airplane. The velocity of the plane with respect to the air is 170 m/s due east. The velocity of the air with respect to the ground is 46 m/s at an angle of 30° west of due north. What is the heading of the plane with respect to the ground? (Let 0° represent due north, 90° represents due east).

Answer #1

You are traveling on an airplane. The velocity of the plane with
respect to the air is 150 m/s due east. The velocity of the air
with respect to the ground is 39 m/s at an angle of 30° west of due
north.

Instruments in airplane A indicate that, with respect
to the air, the plane is headed 30° north of east with an air speed
of 460.00 mi/h. At the same time, radar on ship B
indicates that the relative velocity of the plane with respect to
the ship is 360.00 mi/h in the direction 33° north of east. Given,
the ship is steaming due south at 12 mi/h.
Determine the velocity of the airplane. (Round the final answer
to two decimal...

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 plane that flies with velocity 158 m/s in still air heads due
East and encounters a cross wind of 46 m/s South. A course
correction is made for the wind so the plane continues due East
with speed _________m/s.

The pilot of a small plane maintains an air speed of 66 knots
(or nautical miles per hour) and wants to fly due North (0?) with
respect to the Earth.
If a wind of 31 knots is blowing from the east (90?), calculate
the heading (azimuth) the pilot must take.

An ultralight aircraft is flying at 5.00 m/s in the direction
40o north of west, relative to the air. The wind’s velocity is 3.00
m/s in the direction due west (with respect to the ground). What is
the ultralight’s velocity with respect to the ground?

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
