write out the equation
please show the steps taken to solve the problem
A small airplane flies at a velocity of 145 km/h toward the south as observed by a person on the ground. the airplane pilot measures an air velocity of 172 km/h south. What is the velocity of the wind that affects the plane?
I barely remember anything from physics class last year, but wouldn't you subtract the difference between the two velocities? So the wind speed would be 27 km/h north, because it is hitting directly against the plane in the opposite direction. I think.
i have no clue myself
i was having trouble with these kind of questions..thnks for your help though
No problem :)
Emily remembers more than she thinks. She is right.
Sweet! Thanks :)
i have no idea
wait wouldnt you add them because they are both going south
