Question about Super Tutor Trigonometry (ESDTRIG) for PC

1 Answer

Distance problem? The pilot of a small plane finds that the airport where he intended to land is fogged in. He flies 55 miles west to another airport to find that conditions there are too icy for him to land. He flies 20 miles at 15° east of south and is finally able to land at the third airport. How far and in what direction must he fly the next day to go directly to his original destination?

I would like to have a wheelchair at the Edmonton international airport and the Halifax international airport


I have a friend who needs a wheelchair at airports when she flies. She simply books them in advance with the airport and mostly they are waiting for her, though sometimes she has to wait on the plane until a staff member is free.

A plane is 48 miles west and 49 miles north of an airport. The pilot wants to fly directly to the airport. What bearing should the pilot take? Answer should be given in degrees and minutes.


Draw the airport. (X marks the spot) Draw the distances from the airport (to scale) to indicate the position of the Plane. Use a protractor to work out the correct angle.

To Calculate:

a=48 b=49 Angle= Tan-1(a/b)

On a round trip of 400km,a pilot wants to determine the airspeed of hiis light plane. He flies the entire distance at the same airspeed for the first 200km a steady headwind slows him down by 30km/hour....


v will represent plane's airspeed.


We can divide pilot's trip in 2 parts:
  1. first 200km, when he is flying with speed v. The time it takes him to fly this part of trip is t=200/v
  2. last 200km, when he is flying with speed v-30. The time it takes him to fly this part is 200/(v-30)
The time it takes him for second part of trip is also equal to 1.5-t (because entire trip takes 1.5h), so now we can write equation:

1.5-t=200/(v-30)

We also know that t=200/v so we substitute that into equation:

1.5-200/v=200/(v-30)

To solve this equation we multiply it with v*(v-30)=v^2-30v first. We get:

1.5(v^2-30v)-200(v-30)=200v

Now we get rid of brackets:

1.5v^2-45v-200v+600-200v=0

or

1.5v^2-445v+600=0

This is quadratic equation, so we get 2 solutions (sqrt= square root):

  1. v=(445+sqrt(445^2-4*1.5*600))/(2*1.5)=295.3 km/h
  2. v=(445-sqrt(445^2-4*1.5*600))/(2*1.5)=1.4 km/h
We know that only v=295 km/h is solution because if 1.4 km/h was solution that would mean that second part of trip plane was flying with speed 1.4-30= -28.6 km/h, so that would mean he was flying backwards (which we know he didn't because it's round trip). Speed 1.4 km/h is also not physical solution, because plane wouldn't be able to take off with such small speed :)

I was in Dallas Texas and turned off my GPS. I arrive in Baltimore Airport and reinstalled my GPS. At this point of time it still showed the Dallas Airport area and would not resink up to Baltimore. I...


When its receives a signal from a satellite it receives also information about satellite positions in the coming days. When you boarded the plane you must have turned off the GPS, so it could not keep track of your position. You land a long distance away and turn GPS on. It starts to search for the satellites according to the information stored in it that pertains to their positions over Dallas. It is unable to lock on the satellites. And then it was able to receive GPS signals from other satellites and all fell into place.

Yes it will happen again if you travel long distances in a short period of time. If you cannot keep it turned on during the trip, you should try to update satellite positions through Internet after you reset the time zone.
You should also be patient, and give it time to find its bearings.

An airplane is flying at a height of 2 miles above the ground. The distance along the ground from the airplane to the airport is 5 miles. What is the angle of depression from the airplane to the airport?


a2+b2=c2
a being your height, b is your distance from the airport and c is the distance from the airport to the plane........ so the answer is 5.385164807134504 miles

Trig and distance


Debs,

this is solved by starting with the SECOND leg of the flight considered as a triangle.

Find how far DUE east the plane travels (100 km x Cos10 = 83.9 km) using 10 degrees because that is how much is left of the 90 degree quadrent after subtracting the 80 degrres course direction.
Similarly find out how far DUE north the plane travels (100 km x Cos80 = 11 km).

Now get the total flight NORTH = 300 + 11 = 311
- and total EAST = 83.9

Finally, use Pythagoras theorem.to get the total DISTANCE:
square root of ( 311 squared + 83 squared ) = 321 km

Also the DIRECTION from its Tangent of 83 /311 = 14.9 degrees
