If an airplane directly north at 2000 km/hr and there are 50 mph/hr winds blowing west. whis is the actual path of the plane seen from someone on the ground?

What is the ground speed of the plane in mph?

  • science -

    X = -50 km/h,
    Y = 2000 km/h.

    tanAr = Y/X = 2000/-50 -40.0
    Ar = -88.6o = Reference angle.
    A = -88.6 + 180 = 91.4o = Direction..

    V = -50/cos91.4 = 2000.62 km.
