An airplane flies at an airspeed of 459 km/hr. The pilot wants to fly 784 km to the north. She knows that she must head 21.6° east of north to fly directly there. If the plane arrives in 2.07 hr, find the magnitude of the wind velocity vector.

Tried solving as seen below but I'm not sure where I'm going wrong.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

v=d/t

459 km/h=d/2.07 h

950.13 km=d

srt(950.13^2-784^2)=b

66.05 km=b

v=66.05 km/2.07 h

v=31.9 km/h
