A ship moves along the equator to the east with velocity v0 = 30 km/hour. The southeastern wind blows at an angle φ = 60° to the equator with velocity v = 15 km/hour. Find the wind velocity v* relative to the ship and the angle φ* between the equator and the wind direction in the reference frame fixed to the ship.

Solution:
A ship moves along the equator to the east with velocity v0 = 30 km/hour. The so
