An airplane encountered a head wind during flight between Jopp and Jaws which took 4 hours and 42 minutes. The flight return was 4 hours. If the distance from Jopp to Jaws is 2800 miles, find the airspeed of the plane (the speed of the plane in still air) and the speed of the wind, assuming both remain constant.

Explanation & Answer

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Speed after encountering wind=2800/4.7=595.7447miles/hr

Speed without wind=2800/4=700miles/hr

difference in speed=700-595.7447

                              =104.2553 miles/hr

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
