Question

The captain of a boat, with a top speed of 25 km/hr in still water, wishes travel to a port which is 50 km away in a direction of 45 degrees North of East. There is a 5 km/hr current coming from the west. a) Write down the vector equation which describes this situation and define each of the vectors

b)express the vector equation graphically on the coordinate system

c) find the direction the captain must head in order to arrive at her destination

Answer #1

If you liked the answer then give a thumb up. If you have further any problem then comment.

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 and Sally have
decided to spend their vacation time on a boat in a river.
Unfortunately, Sally liked a recent Instagram post from another of
her friends that Mary didn't like, turning the two into bitter
enemies. Now each has their boat on their own river. Mary has her
boat in a river with a current that is 8.000 km/hr to the south.
Mary's boat has a speed of 12.00 km/hr in still water. Sally has
