- A 6500 pound truck is parked on a ramp that is at a angle with the horizontal. Find the component of the truck’s weight that is

- parallel to the surface of the ramp and
- normal to the surface of the ramp.

- A jet plane is traveling due east at an airspeed of 700 km/h. If a wind of 80 km/hr if blowing due southwest, find the magnitude and direction of the plane's resultant velocity.
- An airplane in level flight drops an object. The plane was traveling at 180 m/s at a height
of 7500 m. The vertical component of the dropped object is given by -9.8t m/s. What is the magnitude
of the velocity of the object after 8 s? At what angle with the ground is the object moving at the
time?
