<-300,0> + <0,-50>
t <-300,-50> = position vector; t = scalar factor for time
from the south; lol
tan^-1(-5/30) gets direction; add
Yes, I know that I have to add the vectors but how would the position diagram look like? I would draw the plane going west, but would the wind approach the airplane from the tail or the head? :S
from the left
plane headed west; wind from the south; hits it on the left side right?
So the wind vector is below the plane? (if that makes sense lol)
yes; but draw your plane by looking down on it; like from a satellite
if your headed down the road and someone tries to cross the road; if they hit you on the side of your car correct?
Yes, that's right
add the wind to the nose of the plane to add them together
vectors arent anchored by anthing; they move around and we actually pick an equal vector that is located at the nose of the plane to add them
a vector is defined as magnitude and direction; there is nothing in the definition of a vector that states 'from a certain place'; is there?
Oh I see. I shouldn't limit myself to much lol. Well, thanks amistre, now I understand :)
