You are in a hot-air balloon that, relative to the ground, has a velocity of 6.14 m/s in a direction due east. You see a hawk moving directly away from the balloon in a direction due north. The speed of the hawk relative to you is 2.44 m/s. What are (a) the magnitude and (b) direction of the hawk's velocity relative to the ground? Express the directional angle relative to due east.
