# Find the required horizontal and vertical components of the given vectors. Vertical wind sheer in the lowest 100 m above

## Question:

Find the required horizontal and vertical components of the given vectors. Vertical wind sheer in the lowest 100 m above the ground is of great importance to aircraft when taking off or landing. It is defined as the rate at which the wind velocity changes per meter above ground. If the vertical wind sheer at 50 m above the ground is 0.75(km/h)/m directed at angle of 40° above the ground, what are its vertical and horizontal components?
