A plane is flying southwest at 155 mi/h and encounters a wind from the west at 45.0 mi/h. What is the plane's velocity in respect to the ground in standard position? I know the answer, but can't figure out how to get the answer. Any help would be appreciated!

A cargo plane is flying horizontally at an altitude of 11.2 km with a constant speed of 1260 km/hr when a large crate slides out of the rear of the plane. How long does it take the crate to hit the ground? The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s 2 . Answer in units of s, please.

You are stationed at a radar base in Warner Robins, GA and you observe an unidentified flying object at an altitude of 2000 m flying towards your radar base at an angle of 20 degrees. How far away from the radar base is that plane (hypotenuse)?

An airplane is flying with a velocity of 240 m/s at an angle of 30.0° with the horizontal, as the drawing shows. When the altitude of the plane is 2.2 km, a flare is released from the plane. The flare hits the target on the ground. What is the angle θ?
