    Thanks I've worked it through now, any chance you could help me out with this question if you have time? I've tried to do velocity triangles and I've tried i and j notation but I can't seem to get the right answer. Its question 14.Attachment 464353
    Post some working then.

    Note the wind comes from the North-West, so it's direction is South-East.

    Your diagram is incorrect.

    The velocity of the plane (relative to ground), V_p, needs to be due North. You have _pV_a going due North.

    You also have the sine rule incorrect for the diagram you've given (angle goes with opposite side to that angle), but correct the diagram first.

    Edit: I see you're running another thread with the same topic, so I'll not spend any more time on this.
