Calculus 3: Vector Calculus in 2D (11 of 39) Plane Flying with a Cross-Wind

Visit for more math and science lectures!

In this video I will use vector calculus in 2D to solve a “real-life” example of a plane flying with a cross wind. A plane is flying north at 300km/hr, a wind is blowing towards south-east at 40km/hr. Find the velocity of the plane=? relative to the ground.
