Question

A pilot must fly a plane due north (90 degrees) to reach a destination. The plane can fly at 323 km/h in still air. A wind is blowing out of the northeast (225 degrees) at 40 km/h. What is the speed of the plane relative to the ground? The pilot must point the plane to the east of north in order to compensate for the wind speed.

Answer #1

A pilot must fly his plane due north to reach his destination.
The plane can fly at 300 km/h in still air. A wind is blowing out
of the northeast at 90 km/h.
(a) What is the speed of the plane relative to the ground?
(b) In what direction must the pilot head his plane to fly due
north?

A light plane attains an airspeed of 500 km/h. The pilot sets
out for a destination 780 km due north but discovers that the plane
must be headed 19.0° east of due north to fly there directly. The
plane arrives in 2.00 h. What were the (a)
magnitude and (b) direction of the wind velocity?
Give the direction as an angle relative to due west, where north of
west is a positive angle, and south of west is a negative...

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.

A plane with air speed of 620km/h is supposed to fly in the
direction of 27◦ north of east. A wind is blowing from east at a
speed of 110km/h. In what direction should the pilot head the
plane?
Answer: 22.4 degrees north of east

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?

After half hour of undisrupted
fly since the moment of taking off, the pilot of a light
plane notices that her plane starts to
drift off course due to a wind. According to the
Pitot meter and other on-board equipment, the
wind is from Northeast with a
speed
100 km/h. The plane’s initial velocity is
20.5 degrees North of East and
280 km/h.
Choose East as positive i and the North as
positive j, please
use unit vectors ( i...

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...

A plane is flying to a city 736 km directly north of
its initial location. The plane maintains a speed of 212 km/h
relative to the air during its flight.
(a) If the plane flies through a constant headwind
blowing south at 52.5 km/h, how much time (in h) will it take to
reach the city?
(b) If instead the plane flies through a constant
tailwind blowing at 52.5 km/h, how much time (in h) will it take to
reach...

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?
