Problem 13

Wind Velocity Problem: A navigator on an airplane knows that the planes velocity through the air is 250 km/hr on a bearing of 237. By observing the motion of the planes shadow across the ground, she finds to her surprise that the planes ground speed is only 52 km/hr and that its direction is along a bearing of 15. She realizes that the ground velocity is the vector sum of the planes velocity and the wind velocity. What wind velocity would account for the observed ground velocity?
