**Physics, help with a similar problem I just posted**

I posted a the same problem with different numbers a minute ago. The answer to the problem below (same as the other with different numbers) is 28 degrees. Maybe this will help to solve it? Thanks! A block is hung by a string from the inside roof of a van. When the van goes ...

**physics (speed of plane by radar)**

The radar stations A and B, separated by the distance a = 500 m, track the plane C by recording the angles α and β at 1-second intervals, If three successive readings are shown in the table,calculate the speed v of the plane and the climb angle y at t = 10 seconds as...

**Math Help**

I have to do this question in several ways like any possible way to do it so I've found one mathematical way, I can't do it like a physics question cause it's math. a bike travels at a constant speed of 10km/h. a bus starts 175 km behind the bike and catches up to the bike in ...
