An airplane flies with a velocity of 750. kilometers per hour, 30.0 o south of east. What is the magnitude of the eastward component of the plane’s velocity?

draw the vector on an x,y grid

call pos x east and pos y north

so the vector will be 30 deg below the x axis

from the end of the vector draw perpendiculars to the x and y axes

now use trig to find the length of the x part of the rectangle you have drawn

I have a calculator where I can enter r,theta and punch a button to get x,y and get a value close to 650

Angle x is relative to due east

Vx=Vo(cos x)

Vx= (750.0 km/hr)(cos-30)

Vx=649.52 km/hr
