A plane flying with an airspeed of
What are the true speed and direction of the plane?
How long will it take the plane to travel
miles in the resultant direction?
Solve (magnitude of vector in part (a))
If the pilot intended to fly
miles in the direction , how far from his intended destination is he given the situation in part (b)?
intended distance vector:
actual distance vector:
Use the time you calculated in part (b).
Determine the magnitude of the difference of the vectors in steps 1 and 2.
