Homework Help: My Friend Needs Help With a Calc Problem.

Posted by Sarah on Thursday, October 12, 2006 at 2:16am.

how does five degrees east of north keep a plain going north when the wind pushes the plain four point six degrees west of north?


This is not calculus. It is a vector problem. THe wind is pushing the plane west.


If you need the solution, to find the direction of the wind, a comination of law of sines and law of cosines will be needed. I cannot assist here, it is too complicated without a diagram.


Ok Thank you.
