A plane leaves Seattle, flies 85 mi at 22 degrees north of east, and then changes direction to 48 degrees south of east. After flying 115 mi in this new direction, the pilot must make an emergency landing on a field. The Seattle airport facility dispatches a rescue crew.
Relative to the ground, a car has a velocity of 18.0 m/s, directed due north. Relative to this car, a truck has a velocity of 22.8 m/s, directed 52.1 degrees south of east. Find the magnitude and direction of the truck's velocity relative to the ground.
