A pilot wishes to fly to a point 450 km due south in 3 hours. A windis blowing from the west at 50 km/hr. By means of a vector diagram, compute the proper heading and speed that the pilot must choose to achieve this objective.

  • Physics -

    The vector sum of the velocity with respect to air (speed and heading) and the wind velocity vector must be 150 km/s in a south direction.

    Write that as a vector equation and solve for the unknown components.
