(b)
When the plane moves east, the net velocity of the plane in air is:
234-138_1.PNG
Now, the time to reach its destination is:
234-2210_1.PNG
When the plane moves west, the net velocity of the plane in air is:
234-72_1.PNG
Now, the time to reach its destination is:
234-1727_1.PNG
The total time taken by the plane to complete the trip is:
234-466_1.PNG
234-807_1.PNG
(c)
The speed of the plane in air, when the air moves North or South is:

234-51_1.PNG
The speed of the plane remains the same on its round trip, and therefore the total time taken by the plane is:
234-2473_1.PNG
234-1072_1.PNG
(d)
It is important to note that in parts (b) and (c) one must assume that v > u or else the time t will be negative and imaginary correspondingly. Therefore, the plane may get to its destination in one direction, but it cannot fly back in real time.
