A lightning bug flies at a velocity of 0.25 m/s due east toward another lightning bug seen off in the distance. A light easterly breeze on the bug at a velocity of 0.25 m/s. What is the resultant velocity of the lightning bug?

I drew the .25 east but would I draw the vector for the other one west for the other bug? or east for the wind?

  1. the resultant velocity would be 0.00 because you subtract one from the other.
