What do we know? What are we trying to find? We know vA. What is it with respect to the airplane A? If we are trying to determine velocity of B wrt the ground, we should use x-y – how do we get et in terms of x-y? B Solve for v.Find B. a Doesn’t ask about forces, so is a kinematics problem. What relationship?Velocity and acceleration of glider when Problem type: Given:Find:vA= 200 km/hr, rAB= 60 m, θ_dot= 5 deg/s, θ= 15 degrees
