Homework Help: Vector as a Velocity-Help please >_<

  1. Feb 12, 2006 #1
    I'm studying for an upcoming test but I'm having trouble understanding some of the aspects of vector as a velocity, and answering the questions. Here's a question that I am stuck on:

    The pilot of an airplane flies at 800km/h wishes to travel to a city 800km due east. There is an 80 km/h wind from the northeast.

    a) What should the plane's heading be?
    b) how long will the trip take?

    Thank you for your help ^^

    What I tried to do was draw a vector east for the 800km/h, and there should be northwest wind vector to form a paralleogram. Not sure though...
