## Homework Statement

After flying for 15 min in a wind blowing 42 km/h at an angle of 31° south of east, an airplane pilot is over a town that is 50 km due north of the starting point. What is the speed of the airplane relative to the air?

## Homework Equations

Vx of wind=42km/hr*cos(31)

Vy of wind=42km/hr*sin(31)

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the velocity needed by the plant to travel that distance and stay in a straight line despite the wind and I found it to be -36i-hat+221.63j-hat. I then subtracted that from the components of the wind velocity and found the magnitude of the resulting vector. What am I missing here?
