**Reiny**, Friday, February 18, 2011 at 4:56pmmake a diagram.

from the origin draw a vector with a bearing of 30 degrees and mark its length 724. Call it OA

Draw a horizontal line AB of length 32

the angle OAB = 120 degrees

by cosine law:

OB^2 = 724^2+32^2-2(724)(32)cos120

= 548368

OB= 740.5

now by the Sine Law:

sinO/32 = sin120/740.5

sinO= .0374235

angleO=2.145

so the bearing is 30+2.1 or 31.1 degrees, and the ground speed is 740.5 km/h

check my arithmetic
