    Two planes A and B are flying side by side at a constant speed of 900km/h. Maintaining this speed, plane A begins to travel along the spiral path r = (1500*theta) km, where theta is in radians, whereas plane B continues to fly in a straight line. Determine the speed of plane A with respect to plane B when r=750km.
