You are traveling on an airplane. The velocity of the plane with respect to the air is 180 m/s due east. The velocity of the air with respect to the ground is 40 m/s at an angle of 30░ west of due north.

1)What is the speed of the plane with respect to the ground?

2)What is the heading of the plane with respect to the ground? (Let 0░ represent due north, 90░ represents due east)?

3)How far east will the plane travel in 1 hour?
