word problem
the plane is traveling South with the wind at 37 miles per hour It is flying North in the air at 450 cos 60 = 225 so its speed North = 225 - 37 = 188 its speed East is 450 sin 60 = 389 so total speed = sqrt(188^2 + 389^2) =sqrt (186665) = 432 mph tan angle east of north = 389/...

Math
a plane with an airspeed of 192mi/h is headed on a bearing of 121 degrees. a north wind is blowing (from north to south) at 15.9 mi/h . find the ground speed and the actual bearing of plane.

Math
In still air a plane has air speed 300km/h and flies on a bearing of 110 degrees. If the wind is blowing at a speed of 100km/h from a bearing of 60 degrees, find the actual velocity of the plane.
