My professor explained this problem but he said that it was so simple so he stopped and we all feel dumb. Please help if anyone knows how. Thanks.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A light plane attains an airspeed of 330 km/h. The pilot sets out for a destination 800 km to the north but discovers that the plane must be headed 20° east of north to fly there directly. The plane arrives in 2.266 h.

What was the i-component of the wind velocity vector (in km/h)?

What was the j-component of the wind velocity vector?
