Search: A radar station locates a sinking ship at range 15.1 km and bearing 136° clockwise from north. From the same station, a rescue plane is at horizontal range 19.6 km, 163° clockwise from north, with elevation 2.05 km.

Number of results: 45,835

math
The bearing to a point is the angle measured in a clockwise direction from the north line. In your case, The bearing of X from Y is -160 and the bearing of Z from Y is 060. Z is 220 degrees bearing from X. X is -220 deg. bearing from Z. That is the same as +140 deg from Z

At the entrance channel of a harbor, the tidal current has a velocity of 4.94 km/hr in a direction 23.2 south of east. Suppose a ship caught in this current has a speed of 15.6 km/hr relative to the water. If the helmsman keeps the bow of the ship aimed north, what will be ...

shortly after taking off, a plane is climbing at an angle of 30 and traveling at a constant speed of 640 ft/sec as it passes over a ground radar tracking station. At that instant of time, the altitude of the plane is 1000 ft. How fast is the distance between the plane and the...

after 1 hours, one ship has gone 25 km, the other 15 km make a sketch, let the distance between them be x straigh-forward case of the cosine law x^2 = 25^2 + 15^2 - 2(25)(15)cos 60 = .... you do the arithmetic. (I got appr 21.8 km)

Math
Let A be (0,0). B is then (0,10) C is 10 km at 060 from B. Bearings are measured from north in a clockwise direction, which means that C is 10 km at 30° north of east. So C is at (0+10cos(30), 10+10sin(30)) =(10+(√3)/2 , 10+10/2) =(10+(√3)/2 , 15)

Help! Ships A and B leave port at the same time and sail on straight paths making an angle of 60 degrees with each other. HOw far apart are the ships at the end of 1 hour if the speed of ship A is 25 km/h and that of ship B is 15 km/h?

Sorry to join in the discussion. It all comes to the basic definition: g°f is read as "g of f", just like g(x) is read as g of x, or f(x) is f of x or function of x. so g°f=(g*deg;f)(x)=g(f(x)) which explains why f(x) has to be evaluated first before g. If you say F&...
