10 m/s, northwest

# Use The Pythagorean Theorem To Answer This Question. A Paper Airplane Is Thrown Westward At A Rate Of 6 M/s. The Wind Is Blowing At 8 M/s Toward The North. What Is The Actual Velocity Of The Airplane?

The speed of the airplane is given by √((6 m/s)^2 + (8 m/s)^2) = (√100) m/s =

The direction of the airplane's travel is about

**10 m/s**.The direction of the airplane's travel is about

**36.87 degrees West of North**.
