The Egyptians used an ingenious pulley system to move the blocks of stone used in the construction
of pyramids. To minimize the work needed to displace the blocks, they applied a force oriented at 26.
(Work (Nm) is the scalar product of the force vector and the displacement vector.)

A plane goes from city A to city B. In a Cartesian plane, city A is at the origin and city B has
coordinates (100, 150). If there is no wind, the flight lasts one hour.
Unfortunately, there is a wind. If the pilot does not adjust his flight path, he will be at point (120, 160)
after an hour. What is the speed of the wind?
