A light plane attains an airspeed of 460 km/h. The pilot sets out for a destination 800 km to the north but discovers that the plane must be headed 15° east of north to fly there directly. The plane arrives in 1.959 h. What was the i-component of the wind velocity vector (in km/h)?


What was the j-component of the wind velocity vector?
