Question:Motion of airplane

Question:Motion of airplane

Maple
I have found a very interesting physics problem which describes the motion of an airplane, it is a very simple math model. We use only two coordinates, x(t) and y(t), t is the time. The airplane starts at the point (0,a), a>0 and airport located at the origin (0,0). It leads to the differential system ( v0, w>0 are given ):
```sys_ode:=diff(x(t),t)=-v[0]*x(t)/sqrt(x(t)^2+y(t)^2), diff(y(t),t)=-v[0]*y(t)/sqrt(x(t)^2+y(t)^2)+w;

d                v[0] x(t)         d                v[0] y(t)
--- x(t) = - --------------------, --- y(t) = - -------------------- + w
dt                         (1/2)   dt                         (1/2)
/    2       2\                    /    2       2\
\x(t)  + y(t) /                    \x(t)  + y(t) /
ics:=x(0)=a,y(0)=0;

x(0) = a, y(0) = 0
assume(a>0);
assume(w>0);
assume(v0>0);
dsolve([sys_ode, ics]);

Error, (in tools/eval) numeric exception: division by zero

```
Is it possible somehow to obtain, maybe implicitly, x(t),y(t)? Sandor
