An airplane is flying at 250 m/s due north, relative to air. There is a strong wind of 65 m/s blowing in a due east direction.

Sketch a Vector Diagram showing the velocity of the airplane relative to the air, the velocity of the wind, and the final velocity of the plane relative to the ground. Use it to help you determine the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the plane relative to the ground.
