(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

You are traveling on an airplane. The velocity of the plane with respect to the air is 160 m/s due east. The velocity of the air with respect to the ground is 32 m/s at an angle of 30° west of due north.

2. Relevant equations

1)What is the speed of the plane with respect to the ground?

2)What is the heading of the plane with respect to the ground? (Let 0° represent due north, 90° represents due east).

3)How far east will the plane travel in 1 hour?

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to set up the problem but can't visualize the vectors with respect to the wind angle given. Any help would be appreciated!
