Question

1. A certain sea cow can paddle 2.0 m/s in still water. If she attempts to cross a river, from the south bank to the north with a current of 3.0 m/s flowing toward the east by paddling entirely perpendicularly to the flow of the river, in what direction will she be traveling relative to an observer on shore?

A. 12 degrees east of north

B. 49 degrees west of south

C. due east

D. due north

E. 34 degrees north of east

2. A kitty moves across a floor with an acceleration of 0.100
m/s^{2} in a direction opposite to its velocity. The kitty
has a velocity of 4.00 m/s after moving a distance 5.77 m across
the floor. What was the initial speed of the kitty, in m/s? Enter
only the numerical value (i.e. do not include the units!)

Answer #1

1 the direction of the sea cow as observed by the person on the shore is

**34 degrees north of east.**

2. The initial speed of the kitty = 4.14

Answer the following question"
1A: The boat in the figure is heading due north as it crosses a
wide river with a velocity of 11.5 km/h relative to the water. The
river has a uniform velocity of 4.90 km/h due east. Determine the
velocity of the boat with respect to an observer on the riverbank.
find the
magnitude
direction
1B: Suppose the river is flowing east at 2.60 m/s and the boat
is traveling south at 4.40 m/s with respect...

You have a small boat which travels through water at a speed of
6.0 m/s. You take it out on a section of a local river where the
water flows from north to south at a speed of 4.0 m/s.
(a) First, you head south (i.e. downstream) in your boat. Draw a
vector which represents the velocity of the boat relative to the
water, and a vector that represents the velocity of the water
relative to the shore. Then add...

A ferryboat, whose
speed in still water is 4.00 m/s, must cross a river whose current
is 3.00 m/s. The river runs from West to East and the boat is
pointed North.
a) If the boat does
not compensate for the flow of the river water, and allows itself
to be pushed off course, what would be the new velocity of the
boat? In answering this question, draw a vector diagram with the
appropriate labels for the vectors, and state...

Mary needs to row her boat across a 120 m-wide river that is
flowing to the east at a speed of 1.0 m/s. Mary can row with a
speed of 2.1 m/s.
a) If Mary points her boat due north, how far from her intended
landing spot will she be when she reaches the opposite shore?
b)What is her speed with respect to the shore?

A 290-m-wide river flows due east at a uniform speed of 1.3m/s.
A boat with a speed of 8.9m/s relative to the water leaves the
south bank pointed in a direction 34o west of north. What is the
(a) magnitude and (b) direction of the boat's velocity relative to
the ground? Give the direction as the angle of the velocity from
due north, positive if to the east and negative if to the west. (c)

Bill and Jill both average swimming speeds of 3.0 m/s, in a pool
(that has no current). Bill and Jill go down to the river for a
swim, the river has a current of 1.0 m/s straight EAST and is 1.50
x 102 m in width. They are standing on the SOUTH shore. a.Bill, not
thinking about the current, jumps in and swims straight across to
the North shore. Of course the current affects his resultant
velocity and he doesn’t...

A river flows due south with a speed of 1.7 m/s . A man steers a
motorboat across the river; his velocity relative to the water is
3.8 m/s due east. The river is 840 m wide.
What is the magnitude of his velocity relative to the earth?
What is the direction of his velocity relative to the earth?
How much time is required to cross the river?
How far south of his starting point will he reach the opposite...

A river flows due south with a speed of 3.50 m/s. A man steers a
motorboat across the river; his velocity relative to the water is
3.60 m/s due east. The river is 700 m wide.
Part A.) What is the magnitude of his velocity relative to the
earth?
Part B.) What is the direction of his velocity relative to the
earth?
Part C.) How much time is required for the man to cross the
river?
Part D.) How far...

4. A pilot flying from Honolulu to California flies at an
airspeed of 300.0 m/s (“airspeed” = airplane’s speed through the
surrounding air) with her airplane pointed 70.0˚ to the east of
north. However, the air itself is moving with a 50.0-m/s windspeed
blowing due east. When the pilot adds together the two vectors of
her airspeed and the windspeed, she gets her groundspeed: the
airplane’s actual velocity relative to the ground below. (Even
though these are called “speeds” by...
