A Grumman AA5B/G single-engine airplane in still air has a ground speed of 160 MPH. Bill wants to fly due east, but is facing a fierce 50 MPH headwind directed 40 0 south of west, as shown below. A) At what angle θ should he point his plane so that it ends up traveling due east? B) What will be his ground speed? θ 40 0 50 MPH wind 1 6 0 MPH plane W N E S

Unformatted text preview: launch speed is 4.0 m/s. When projected off a table at an angle of 40 0 above horizontal, what is the horizontal distance L that the ball will travel before it lands on the floor? The floor is 1.0 meter below the balls launch point. This is similar to this weeks lab, but there are subtleties. For example, in the lab the ball will be launched slightly above table height.
