Question

Jerome and Paul are competitive brothers. They live on a small farm on the northern bank of a river that runs purely east and west and that flows to the east at a rate of 1.200 m/s .

The brothers like to visit their Uncle Leo who lives on the southern bank of the river. The river is wide at this point, 1410.0 m across, and their uncle's dock is 205.0 m to the east of the point which is directly across the river from the brothers' house. Paul is not nearly as strong a paddler as is Jerome, but paddling together they can maintain a paddling speed of 3.780 m/s in the farm pond. Jerome knows that if they point their canoe due south, they will always end up to the east of Uncle Leo's dock by the time they have paddled across the river. He wants to know in which direction they should head to arrive exactly at Uncle Leo's dock without any wasted effort. Paul is finally able to determine the proper direction by using the Law of Sines, which he has learned in his high school geometry class. Make a proper drawing to express the sum of velocities for this problem, and figure out how Paul was able to determine the direction.

**Part B:** In which direction must they head if
they wish to paddle directly to Uncle Leo's dock? Give the
direction in terms of an angle measured to the West of the
Southerly direction. Also, if they point their canoe in the optimal
direction, what will be the speed of their canoe with respect to
the bank as they are crossing?

**Give your answer as an ordered pair, with the optimal
direction in which to point their canoe first, followed by a comma,
then followed by the resulting speed of the canoe with respect to
the bank. Give the direction in terms of an angle measured to the
West of the Southerly direction.**

**Part C:** If they point their canoe in the
optimal direction, how long will it take for them to cross the
river?

Answer #1

Four friends (Amy, Brian, Camila, and Dinesh) are standing on
the east bank of the Mississippi river and
wish to cross to the west bank using a canoe. From previous
experience, Amy knows that she can row
(one-way) across the river in 5 minutes. She also knows that
rowing back would take her 4 minutes more
(because of fatigue). More generally, the time Amy needs to
cross the river on her

CASE Wyatt Earp - The Buffalo Hunter F. Robert Jacobs, Indiana
University The legend of Wyatt Earp lives on largely based on his
exploits as a gunfighter and Marshall of the frontier West in the
1880s. The classic tales of the shootout at the O.K. Corral in
Tombstone or his sawed-off shotgun duel with Curly Bill are
possibly the most celebrated gunfights of frontier history and
cannot fail to stir the reader's imagination. Wyatt lived to be
over 80 years...
