An airplane heads northeast at an airspeed of 900 km/hr, but there is a wind blowing from the west at 60 km/hr. In what direction does the plane end up flying? (angle). What is its speed relative to the ground?
I drew a picture. I think I am having a hard time understanding how to solve the problem. I want to add the wind vector to the plane vector - is that as simple as 840 km/hr? After really adding the vectors together, do I do: (added vectors)cos(45)?
