Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anonymous on Wednesday, February 3, 2010 at 12:47am.

You are flying in a light airplane spotting traffic for a radio station. Your flight carries you due east above a highway. Landmarks below tell you that your speed is 46.0 m/s relative to the ground and your air speed indicator also reads 46.0m/s. However, the nose of your airplane is pointed somewhat south of east and the station's weather person tells you that the wind is blowing with speed 25.0 m/s.In which direction is the wind blowing?
