Figure the resultant velocity of a plane that is traveling at 300 km/hr @ 190 degrees when he encounters the wind below
a) 30 km/hr tailwind
b) 40 km/hr headwind
c) 50 km/hr wind blowing south

  • physics URGENT! PLEASE -

    You need to specify the plane's direction with no wind. You will end up adding plane and wind velocity vectors.
