Unformatted text preview: One measures direction clockwise from due north, and the bearing angle θ satisfies 360 ° ≤ θ < ° . The other uses quadrant and deviation from due north or due south to measure direction, and these bearing angles are always acute. I: “due north” system 2. “quadrant” system 4. A plane leaves Gainesville and flies due west at 100 miles per hour for half an hour, then turns due south and flies at the same speed for another 45 minutes.
