Answer:The ground speed of the plane is 513.6 km/hr.

The direction is 46.59°

Explanation:Given that,Air speed of plane = 500 kph

Wind speed = 60 kph

The velocity of plane isPut the value into the formula

The velocity of wind isPut the value into the formula

We need to calculate the ground speed of planeThe ground speed is

We need to calculate the directionUsing formula of directionHence, The ground speed of the plane is 513.6 km/hr.The direction is 46.59°
