Calculate the resultant velocity of an airplane that normally flies at 200 km/h if it encounters a 50-km/h wind from the side (at a right angle to the airplane).
Step 1 of 3
The resultant velocity is defined as vector sum all velocities. Or If two or more velocity vectors are added then the resultant vector is a resultant velocity. If it encounters a tailwind resultant velocity is v = v + v = 200 km/h + 50 km/h = 250 km/h a w If it encounters a headwind resultant velocity is v = v a v w 200 km/h 50 km/h = 150 km/h
