Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think it is being moved 11.3 degrees down so 36011 =349 degree which the direction would be south east

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Not sure if this is correct because east is 0 degrees north is 90, West is 180 and south is 270. If I was going south, I would do 270  11 but I am going east, which is at 0 degree so does that mean I really am just going 11 degree and not 36011 ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, but I am going east, which is at 0 degree but east could be at 360 degree

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I know it will be southeast but is the degree 11 or 349??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the resultant direction is east: there are 2 vectors involved here the wind direction South and the direction the plane must go in order to make the resultant due east

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I go counter clockwise? so it will be 349 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2there are different ways to represent directions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan = opposite/adjacent which we have 200 as adjancent and 40 as opposite

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How is tan^1 40/200 = 20 she even had 5 as one of the sides

triciaal

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how can tan be wrong and we have the same expression tan = (40/200)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If you have as vector of 200 mph and going east with a vector coming south at 40 mph you have a tan^1 40/200 which is 11 degrees

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2like I said there are different ways to represent directions you can have a clockwise rotation and there's a counterclockwise rotation from a reference.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I even provided you with book references for you to read.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes I know there are different ways and that is what I was asking about but I was refering to vector and and how they use the rotation. It seems they use counter clockwise from this http://www.physicsclassroom.com/Class/vectors/u3l1a.cfm, which at 11 degree gives us 349, which I put up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, the very attachments I provided are all about vectors

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If a vector is going 200 east and then 40 south we have a tan of 40/200 which = 11 degrees or we could say 11

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But since vectors move clockwise it is 36011

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2like i said from the beginning that if you followed the quadrant information for the components, then you wouldn't have to be bogged down with negative or positive in the end, because you already considered them from the beginning.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you're facing east and moved southeast in a clockwise manner, then you're rotating negatively, then the other way is opposite you cannot scare me with report threats

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1OK you need both velocity and direction we agree the tan = 40/200 I might not have all the answers very quickly I am not perfect If I have a post with questions please ask for clarification I am professional sorry if I could not help more I am a qualified helper so you can give a rating at the top I will not get paid anyway since I did not give the final answer I am always happy to help

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if you allowed proper signs in your components, you will not have to worry whether positive or negative in the end. if you neglected it, then you will have to think about whether you want to apply a negative or positive in the end. you probably didn't set your calculator properly too
