An airplane has a speed of 300km/h and is headed due west. A wind is blowing from the south at 50km/h. Determine the resultant velocity of the airplane. answer: 304.14km/h, W9.46N How do I draw the position diagram? I'm getting confused because of the wind direction..

add vectors?
amistre64
  • amistre64
<-300,0> + <0,-50>
amistre64
  • amistre64
t <-300,-50> = position vector; t = scalar factor for time

from the south; lol

<-300,50> then

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
amistre64
  • amistre64
plane headed west; wind from the south; hits it on the left side right?
he66666
  • he66666
So the wind vector is below the plane? (if that makes sense lol)
amistre64
  • amistre64
yes; but draw your plane by looking down on it; like from a satellite
amistre64
  • amistre64
if your headed down the road and someone tries to cross the road; if they hit you on the side of your car correct?
he66666
  • he66666
Yes, that's right
he66666
  • he66666
But when I draw it, I don't know how to the resultant velocity would look like because the wind and plane vector aren't tail to tail..

add the wind to the nose of the plane to add them together
amistre64
  • amistre64
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
amistre64
  • amistre64
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 :)
