is this true or false-when a bird, flying at a velocity of 10m.s-1 east, encounters a wind blowing at 8m.s-1 west, its velocity relative to an observer on the ground is 18m.s-1west ? PLEASE XPLAIN IT 2ME

  • Physics -

    NO. The bird is flying into a head wind (in the opposite drection) so that its speed with respect to the ground is reduced to 10 - 8 = 2 m/s (east)
