## Homework Statement

A pilot is flying from City A to City B which is 300 km [NW]. If the plane will encounter a constant wind of 80 km/h from the north and the schedule insists that he complete his trip in 0.75 h, what air speed and heading should the plane have?

## Homework Equations

v=d/t

## The Attempt at a Solution

I found the initial v -> 300/0.75 = 400 km/h. I then used that as the hypothenuse of the triangle and did pythagorean theorem to find the third side. The answer is 460 km/h [N38°W]
