Physics

An airplane is traveling v = 850 km/h in a direction 38.5° west of north (Fig. 3-34).

Figure 3-34.

(a) Find the components of the velocity vector in the northerly and westerly directions.
1 km/h (north)
2 km/h (west)
(b) How far north and how far west has the plane traveled after 2 h?
3 km (north)
4 km (west)
