Maths Coursework - Artic Research
Speed of wind - 50 km/h blowing from the west
Speed of aeroplane - 200 km/h
I will treat the aircraft as a particle, instant and constant speed will be assumed, take of and landing times will be ignored.
The aircrafts speed will be affected by the speed and direction on the wind. As we assume the aircraft speed, wind speed and direction will be constant; we can use vector diagrams to work out how long the journey will take.
I will have my first base camp in the middle. I will then place the base camp at different areas in the circle, and see how this effects the journey time. I will then work out a general formula for any speed of aircraft, wind speed and direction, so the journey time could be worked for any variables of these 3.
Circle 1 - radius = 50km. First observation site - north (0?). Resultant velocity will have to act from the base camp to the observation site.
50km h-1 Observation site
200km h-1 Resultant velocity
