Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at 6:01pm.

A wind is blowing directly from east to west. The pilot of a small plane finds that if he points the nose of the plane 30.0 north of east, his velocity with respect to the ground is in the direction 55.1 north of east. The speed of the plane with respect to the air is 126 m/s. Taking North to be the y-direction and East to be the x-direction, what is the y-component of plane's velocity with respect to the ground?
