An airplane has a velocity relative to the air of 189 m/s in a westerly direction. If the wind has a speed relative to the ground of 50 m/s directed to the north, what is the speed of the plane relative to the ground?
I'm not entirely sure..
The Attempt at a Solution
I figured speed of plane relative to the ground = speed of plane relative to the air + speed of air relative to ground.
So I put in x=189+50
Our homeworks are put online, and I already found out this answer was wrong.
If anyone could help that'd be great! thanks!
