Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Brian on Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 10:57pm.

A jetliner can fly 6.50 hours on a full load of fuel. Without any wind it flies at a speed of 2.15 102 m/s. The plane is to make a round-trip by heading due west for a certain distance, turning around, and then heading due east for the return trip. During the entire flight, however, the plane encounters a 57.2 m/s wind from the jet stream, which blows from west to east. What is the maximum distance that the plane can travel due west and just be able to return home?


I need help with this asap and have tried everything I can think of and still keep getting the wrong answer. Can anybody help me?
