A pilot maintains a heading due west with an air speed of 24o km/h. After flying for 30 min, he finds himself over a town that he knows is 150 km west and 40 km south of his starting point.
a) Waht is the wind velocit, in magniture and direction?
b) What heading should he now maintain, with the same air speed, to follow a course due west from the town?
