A plane flies due north (90° from east) with a velocity of 100 km/h for 3 hours. During this time, a steady wind blows southeast at 30 km/h at an angle of 315° from due east. After 3 hours, where will the plane’s position be relative to its starting point? Show your work.

Physics
A plane is headed due west with an air speed of 221 m/s. The wind blows south at 37.5 m/s. Find the velocity of the plane relative to the earth. The question asks for the magnitude which I found is 224 m/s. The question also asks for the direction_____south of west. Can ...

You are standing at a spot where the magnetic field of the Earth is horizontal, points due northward, and has magnitude 36.9 μT. Directly above your head, at a height of 12.3 m, a long, horizontal cable carries a steady DC current of 381 A due northward. Calculate the ...
