Disp. = Displacement which is the straight line distance from the starting point (A) to the
destination. I used vector analysis and trig to solve it. The only remaining method is
The Law of Sine and Cosines.
An airplane flies 180 miles from point A in the direction 135° and then travels in the direction 240° for 90 miles. Approximately how far is the airplane from A? (Round your answer to the nearest whole number.)
An airplane, flying at a speed of 420 miles per hour, flies from point A in the direction 131 degrees for 90 min. and then flies in the direction 41 degrees for 30 min. in what direction does the plane need to fly in order to get
A plane flies 75 miles south from an airfield, and then travels 120 miles more in a different direction. By this time it bears S29degreesE of the airfield. In what direction is it heading. illustrate and solve.
The problem is: an airplane is flying in the direction 120 degrees with an airspeed of 320 mph, and a 35 mph wind is blowing in the direction 60 degrees. The question ask to find the true course and the ground speed. To solve the
1. An airplane flies 200 km on course 110 degrees from point A to point B. At point B the pilot changes course to 37 degrees. The plane then flies 100 km to point C. Find the magnitude of the net displacement from A to C. 2. A
A plane flies in a direction of 85° from Chicago. It then turns and flies in the direction of 200° for 150 miles. It is then 195 miles from its starting point. How far did the plane fly in the direction of 85°? I am confused
An aircraft at C is spotted by two observers at A and B who are L=1650 feet apart. As the airplane passes over the line joining them, each observer takes a sighting of the angle of elevation to the plane, as indicated in the
An airplane flies due north from a starting point at 234.6 mph for 40 minutes. Then turns flying 20 minutes at 252 mph in the direction N 20 degree 31 minutes East. How many miles is the airplane from the starting point?
