The next two questions pertain to the situation described below
.
A plane moving at a speed of v
a
= 1150 km/h relative to the air embarks on a flight from Houston to
Omaha separated by a distance of 1290 km directly northward. The pilot finds that there is wind
blowing from west to east at a steady speed of 160 km/hour.
At what angle west of north should the plane fly?
a. 1.59°
b. 1.99°
c. 2.66°
d. 3.99°
e. 8°
What is the plane’s speed relative to the ground v
b
?
a.
160 km/h
b.
1310 km/h
c.
1138 km/h
d.
1161 km/h

The next two questions pertain to the situation described below
.
A block of mass M = 15 kg rests on a table. A force of F = 7 N is applied in the horizontal direction,
as shown. The block continues to remain at rest due to friction.
The force of friction opposing the motion has a magnitude of
a.
147.15 N
b.
7 N
c.
The information given is insufficient to answer the question
Now the applied force is increased to F = 29.4 N and this is the maximum force that can be applied
before the block begins to move. The coefficient of static friction μ
s
, is equal to
a. 5.01
b. 1.96
c. 19.23
d. 3
e. 0.2
