Point B is 10 KM north of Point A and Point C is 10 Km from B on a bearing of 060 from b. Find the bearing and distance of C from A 

  • Math -

    Let A be (0,0).
    B is then (0,10)
    C is 10 km at 060 from B.
    Bearings are measured from north in a clockwise direction, which means that C is 10 km at 30° north of east.
    So C is at
    (0+10cos(30), 10+10sin(30))
    =(10+(√3)/2 , 10+10/2)
    =(10+(√3)/2 , 15)
