A plane must fly to a destination located due north from its departure point. A gentle wind is blowing from the south-west. What direction must the plane point to reach its destination?
The Attempt at a Solution
In situation 1 I drew the displacement if the plan was to fly due north. In situation 2 I drew the displacement if the plane was to fly north-west.
I'm not really sure, but I think that sit. 2 might be what happens if the plane wanted to reach its destination.
