Step 1

Bearing angle is the measure of angle in clockwise direction from northline.

Distance formula for the figure in 3D between two point (a,b,c) and (x,y,z) is given as,

Step 2
1. a) Convert 500 m to km

1m= 0.001km

500m=0.5Km

0.5Km would be the z-coordinate

Thus, the 3D coordinate of the plane will be

Step 3

Distance between origin (0,0,0) and ... help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosed = (-3-0) +(4-0)* +(0.5 – 0)² = 19 +16+0.25 = V25.25 = 5.02 fullscreen
