A bird wants to rech its nest that is located 53 meters (35 degrees south of west) from where it is perched. If the maximum speed that the bird can fly with respect to the air is 12m/s and there is a wind blowing from a direction of east 35 degrees south at a speed of 8.1 meters per second, determine the heading that the bird must maintain and at what speed with respect to the ground will it fly? How long will it take the bird to reach its nest?

pVg= ? [35 degrees S of W]
pVa= 12 m/s [?]
aVg= 8.1 m/s [W 35 degrees N]
