 Need to create and equation from the description below Need to create an equation from the below statements, thanksTo determine the distance downwind of a turbine, we need to project the location vector y) of the turbine onto the wind vector i'. f the wind is from direction (measured clockwise from North), then the magnitude of the x and y components of the wind direction will be sin 0 and cos 0 spectively. However, the wind is from direction 9, not towards direction 0, so the (unit length) wind vector will be (— sin 0, — cos 0). The scalar projection (i.e. agnitude) of the location vector onto the wind vector is just the dot product of these two vectors, which is (—c sin 0, —ycos 9). mplement the following function to compute this downwind distance.

 Distance is = -x sin θ - y cos θExplanation:Step 1: wind direction unit vector is given byw = (-sin θ, -cos θ)Step 2: Dot product is given by projection = x(-sin θ)+y(-cos θ)Step 3: downwind distance = -x sin θ - y cos θ
