Statement of a problem № 41275


The nose of an ultra light plane is pointed south, and its airspeed indicator shows 35 m/s. The plane is in a 10-m/s wind blowing toward the southwest relative to the earth. (a) In a vector-addition diagram, show the relationship of Vp/E (the velocity of the plane relative to the earth) to the two given vectors. (b) Letting x be east and y be north, find the components of vp/E. (c) Find the magnitude and direction of v P/E
