Hello! I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I was solving this Physics problem correctly: A jet aircraft is traveling at 310 m/s at 35° south of east. What is the southern component of its velocity? Calculation: cos35°= x/310 310cos35= x 254 m/s = x The real answer is supposed to be 178 m/s, but I keep getting 254 even if I solve it graphically. So...what, if anything, am I doing wrong?
