Using Cartesian Vectors
How would I solve the question below using Cartesian vectors?
10. A plane is flying southeast at a constant speed of 900 km/h. The wind is blowing towards the north at 100 km/h. Determine the resultant velocity of the plane relative to the ground.
How would I do this? I can use geometric vectors and get the correct answer and angle, but the the Cartesian vectors.
I figured out my mistake, I thought the wind speed was 10 km/h. Thanks for your aid, however, what is i and j?
i and j are the respective unit vectors in the x and y directions.
