Homework Help: Physics (again, sorry)

Posted by Emma on Thursday, November 29, 2007 at 3:39pm.

A swimmer maintains a speed of 0.15 m/s relative to the water when swimming directly toward the opposite shore of a straight river with a current that flows at 0.75 m/s.

(a) How far downstream is the swimmer carried in 1.5 minutes?

(b) What is the velocity of the swimmer relative to an observer on shore?

This involves relative velocity, and that is about the only thing I know.

Can you help with this please? Thank you very much.
