Uther Undlethwaite, the unremarkable pirate, paced the deck of his pirate ship. The ship was sailing 0.62 radians North of East at a speed of 13 m/s with respect to the water. The water water was moving at a speed of 2 m/s (relative to the sea floor) directly North. Uther walked 1.26 radians South of West at a speed of 1 m/s. What was Uther's speed relative to the sea floor?

In a pool game, the cue ball, which has an initial speed of 2.5 m/s, makes an elastic collision with the 8-ball, which is initially at rest. After the collision, the 8-ball moves at an angle theta = 14.3 degrees with respect to the original direction of the cue ball. Assume the pool table is frictionless and the masses of the cue ball and the 8-ball are equal. The cue ball travels at an angle of 90 degrees after the...
