Vector Examples
A man runs East at 10km/hr.
The wind appears to him to blow from the North.
He then doubles his speed and now the wind appears to blow from the NE.
Find the direction and speed of the wind.

Let the runner’s initial velocity be u, the actual wind velocity be v and the
¯
apparent wind velocities be w1 and w2 .                             ¯
What are we given?

u = 10i + 0j , v = Ai + Bj
¯     ¯ ¯ ¯         ¯    ¯
w1 = 0i − N j
¯     ¯

w2 = W √ (−i − j).
2 ¯ ¯
What do we need to ﬁnd?

A, B, N and W.
What equations do we have?

actual wind = runners velocity + apparent wind.

Applying this twice:

v = u + w1
¯    ¯
v = 2u + w2 .
¯     ¯
Now rewrite in component form

A = 10
B = −N
W
A = 20 − √
2
W
B = −√ .

Then
W
B = −N = −10, A = 10, √ = 10
2
Hence
√ 1
v = 10i − 10j = 10 2 √ (i − j)
¯     ¯     ¯         2¯ ¯
and the wind is from the NW at 14.14km/hr
