12. A plane wants to have a ground speed of 500 miles per hour due north. If the wind is blowing at
15 miles per hour in the direction N 45◦ W, in what direction should the plane head and at what
airspeed?
13. Two forces are acting on an object. F1 has a magnitude of 30 Newtons and is applied in a direction
of 120◦ from the positive x-axis. F2 has a magnitude of 40 Newtons and is applied in a direction of
−30◦ from the positive x-axis.
(a) What is the resultant force F as well as its magnitude and direction?
(b) What third force F3 would be required to keep the object from moving?
