A pilot wants to fly a plane directly eastward when the wind is from the north at 55 miles per hour. if the air speed is 230 miles per hour, in what direction must the plane be headed?

    Draw the vector diagram. The southerly component of the air speed must equal 55mph South

    So in my mind, I see 230SinTheta=55

    What kind of physics class uses mph? Goodness.
