Question

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?

A passenger on a moving train walks at a speed of 1.50 m/s due
north relative to the train. The passenger's speed with respect to
the ground is 4.5 m/s at an angle of 31.0°west of north. What are
the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the train relative
to the ground?

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...

An airplane is flying in a jet stream that is blowing at 48 m/s
in a direction 20° south of east. The plane is moving at 45° South
of West relative to the Earth, and at 5° South of West relative to
the air.
What is the airplane’s speed relative to the air mass? What is
the airplane's speed relative to the Earth in m/s?

A ship sailing in the Gulf Stream is heading 26.0° west of north
at a speed of 4.05 m/s relative to the water. Its velocity relative
to the Earth is 4.75 m/s 5.40° west of north. What is the velocity
of the Gulf Stream? (The velocity obtained is typical for the Gulf
Stream a few hundred kilometers off the east coast of the United
States. Enter the magnitude in m/s and the direction in degrees
north of east.)

A 290-m-wide river flows due east at a uniform speed of 1.3m/s.
A boat with a speed of 8.9m/s relative to the water leaves the
south bank pointed in a direction 34o west of north. What is the
(a) magnitude and (b) direction of the boat's velocity relative to
the ground? Give the direction as the angle of the velocity from
due north, positive if to the east and negative if to the west. (c)

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).

A
plane is flying at a velocity of 120 m/s in the positive x
direction. The plane is planning on dropping a ball in a net in the
middle of a field. The plane is 100m off the ground. If the ball is
dropped while moving at this rate,
a. How long will the ball be in the air
b. How far away from the net should he let the ball go
c. final velocity of ball in x direction

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.

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...

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...
