First Problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

10 pts) A CESSNA Citation attains an airspeed of 680 km/hr. The plane sets out for a destination 1258 km to the north (a 0o course) but discovers that the plane must be headed 20o east of north to fly there directly. The plane arrives in 2.00 h. What is the wind speed?

What is the direction of the wind? Give your answer in degrees (o) where North = 0o, East = 90o, South = 180o, and West = 270o.

Second Problem:

(10 pts) A rocket is launched from rest and moves in a straight line at 55.0 o above the horizontal with an acceleration of 32.5 m/s2. After 36.0 s of powered flight, the engines shut off and the rocket follows a parabolic path back to earth. Find the time of flight from launch to impact.

What is the maximum altitude reached?

What is the horizontal distance between the launch pad and the impact point?

Thanks in advance for any sort of help.....its due tomorrow at 8:30 am.
