An airplane has an airspeed of 500 kilometers per hour bearing N45°E. The wind velocity is 60 kilometers per hour in the direction N30°W. Find the resultant vector representing the path of the plane relative to the ground?
Use unit vectors to solve the addition of two vectors.
Next, sum the two vectors:
Angle of resultant vector:
Magnitude of resultant vector:
Here is a sketch of the plane vector
hope that helped!
