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?
