Determine the speed of the boat with respect to the shore.
Despite, I did it like taking the sqrt (1.95^2+1.20^2)
is there something wrong I did?
Thank you for your care.
respect to the shore?
The boat has to head upstream, and that velocity is countered by the stream:
So the slant angle reduces the speed across.
Oh yes, u r right, didn' t care it, ty so much
A spy in a speed boat is being chased down a river by government, officials in a faster craft. Just as the officials' boat pulls up next to the spy's boat, both boats reach the edge of a 4.8 m waterfall. The spy's speed is 13 m/s and the officials' speed
the speed boat has a acceleration of 2.0 m/s2 if the initial velocity of the boat is 6.0 m/s2. find the boat displacement after 8.0 seconds?
A boat moves through the water with two forces acting on it. One is a 2100. N forward push by the water on the propeller, and the other is a 1600. N resistive force due to the water around the bow. (a) What is the acceleration of the 1200. kg boat? (b) If
starting from reast a boat increases its speed to 4.12 m/s with constant acceleration. (a) what is the boat's average speed? (b) If it take the boat 4.77s to reach this speed, how for has it traveled?
A spy in a speed boat is being chased down a river by government officials in a faster craft. Just as the officials' boat pulls up next to the spy's boat, both reach the edge of a 7.8 m waterfall. If the spy's speed is 11 m/s and the officials' speed is 22
A ferryboat, whose speed in still water is 4.00m/s, must cross a river whose current is 3.00m/s. The river runs from west to east and is 128m wide. The boat is pointed north. a) If the boat does not compensate for the flow of the river water and allows
can you help me through this? A boat moves through a river at 7.0 m/s relative to the water, regardless of the boat's direction. If the water in the river is flowing at 3.5 m/s, how long does it take the boat to make a round trip consisting of a 250 m
A lighthouse keeper 100 feet above the water sees a boat sailing in a straight line directly toward her. As watches, the angle of depression to the boat changes from 25 degrees to 40. How far has the boat traveled during this time?
The speed of a river current is 4 mph. IF a boat travels 20 miles downstream in the same time that it takes to travel 10 miles upstream, find the speed of the boat in still water.
Solve the ff. problems below. Show your complete solution: 1.) A number added to four times its reciprocal is equal to the sum of 3/2 and the quotient of two or more than three times the same number and four. 2.) A car travelled the first 240 kilometers at
Two boats start together and race across a 42 km wide lake and back. Boat A goes across at 42 km/h and returns at 42 km/h. Boat B goes across at 21 km/h, and its crew, realizing how far behind it is getting, returns at 63 km/h. Turnaround times are
A man walks across a bridge at the rate of 5 ft/s as a boat passes directly beneath him at 10 ft/s. If the bridge is 10 ft above the boat, how fast are the man and the boat separating 1 second later?
A spy in a speed boat is being chased down a river by government officials in a faster craft. Just as the officials' boat pulls up next to the spy's boat, both reach the edge of a 4.2 m waterfall. If the spy's speed is 20 m/s and the officials' speed is 24
A little aluminum boat (mass of 14.50g) has a volume of 450.00cm3. The boat is placed in a small pool of water and carefully filled with pennies. If each penny has a mass of 2.50g, how many pennies can be added to the boat before it sinks?
A boat, which has a speed of 9.00 m/s in still water, would like to reach a point on the shore directly across a river. The river has a current of 3.50 m/s and the river is 550 meters wide. a. In what direction should the boat be aimed in order for the
A spy in a speed boat is being chased down a river by government officials in a faster craft. Just as the officials' boat pulls up next to the spy's boat, both reach the edge of a 7.7 m waterfall. If the spy's speed is 19 m/s and the officials' speed is 29
The captain of a boat wants to travel directly across a river that flows due east with a speed of 1.09 m/s. He starts from the south bank of the river and wants to reach the north bank by travelling straight across the river. The boat has a speed of 6.44
A boat sailing from A to B travels in a straight line until the captain realizes he is off course. The boat is turned through an angle of 60 degrees, then travels another 10 km to B. The trip would have been 4 km shorter if the boat had gone straight from
Suppose at one point along the Nile River a ferryboat must travel straight across a 1.29-mile stretch from west to east. At this location, the river flows from south to north with a speed of 2.58 m/s. The ferryboat has a motor that can move the boat
A boat crosses a river of width 122 m in which the current has a uniform speed of 2.39 m/s. The pilot maintains a bearing (i.e., the direction in which the boat points) perpendicular to the river and a throttle setting to give a constant speed of 2.81 m/s
