1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A plane is traveling north at 200 meters/second; a wind blows from the west and accelerates the plane at 15m/s^2. If the wind lasts 10 seconds what is the plane's new velocity? 2. Relevant equations velocity = acceleration*time 3. The attempt at a solution v = (15m/s^2)(10s) = 150 m/s. Is that towards east? I tried doing Pythagorean theorem with 150 m/s as base and 200m/s as the vertical component since the plane was traveling north and got 132m/s for hypotenuse. But that's not one of the answer choices. ???
