A golfer hits her tee-shot due north towards the fairway. Her shot has an initial velocity of 60 m/s. A 15 m/s wind is blowing in a northwesterly direction (45 degrees west of north).
A) considering the initial velocity of the ball and the velocity of wind, what will be the resultant velocity (m/s) of the golf ball assuming no other forces are acting on the ball?
B) what will be the resultant direction (degree west of north) of the golf ball?
