An airplane pilot tries to fly directly east with a velocity of 800.0 km/h. If wind comes from the southwest at 80.0 km/h, what is the relative velocity of the airplane to the surface of Earth?

  • Physics -

    Break up the SW wind into N and E,

    and add.

    the wind is blowing towards 80Cos45E+80Sin45N
