 Question 391010: A jet is traveling west at 650 kph. What is its velocity if there is a wind of of 35 kph coming from the southAnswer by Alan3354(30993)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Assuming 650 km/hr is the air speed: =~ 650.94 km/hr or ~ 651 km/hr --------------- Its ground track is 270º + arctan(35/650) =~ 273.1º You asked for velocity. Velocity is a vector with components of speed and direction. --------------- PS Aviation and weather people us knots for speed, not km/hr or miles/hr.
