An airplane has a velocity relative to the ground of 214 m/s toward the east. The pilot measures his airspeed (the speed of the plane relative to the air) to be 162 m/s. What is the minimum wind velocity possible?

  • physics -

    The minimum wind velocity that can increase the ground speed that much is a 214-162 = 52 m/s tail wind.
