# Physics (Velocity in two dimensions)

posted by Kathy

The displacement vector for a 15.0 second interval of a jet airplane's flight is (3850, −2430) m. (a) What is the magnitude of the average velocity? (b) At what angle, measured from the positive x axis, did the airplane fly during this time interval? Express the angle as a number between −180° and +180°.

Thanks a lot.

An airplane has a velocity of v=(5m/s)i + (4m/s)j at t1= 3s. For the time interval from t1=3 seconds to t2=13s the average acceleration is a= (.5m/s^2)i + (.2m/s^2)j. At 13s find the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the airplane.
