 The velocity of an aircraft 2007-03-22 From William:Hello, I don't understand how to work this problem. Thanks in advance for your help! A jet moving at 500.0 km/h due east moves into a region where the wind is blowing at 120.0 km/h in a direction 30.0 degrees north of east. What is the new velocity and direction of the aircraft relative to the ground?Answered by Penny Nom. An aircraft and a missile 2006-11-18 From Sarah:an aircraft is flying at a constant altitude with a constant speed of 600mph. an antiaircraft missile is fired on a straight line perpendicular to the flight path of the aircraft so that it will hit the aircraft at a point P. at that instant the aircraft is 2 miles from the impact point P the missile is 4 miles from P and flying at 1200 mph. at that instant, how rapidly is the distance between missile and aircraft decreasing?Answered by Stephen La Rocque. An aircraft going from city A to city B 2006-05-10 From Preston:An aircraft going from city A to city B on a bearing of S69 degrees East is traveling at a speed of 430 mph. The wind is blowing out of the north to south at a speed of 25 mph. Find the ground speed and the plane's true bearing.Answered by Stephen La Rocque. An aircraft is flying directly from airport A to airport B 2004-10-22 From A student:In this question, i is a unit vector due east and j is a unit vector due north. An aircraft is flying directly from airport A to airport B, which is 2000 km from A. The velocity in still air of the aircraft is (150i+50j)km/h and the ground speed is (200i-30j)km/h. Calculate (i) the time of flight, to the nearest min (ii) the direction of the wind.Answered by Penny Nom.
