The eye of a hurricane passes over Grand Bahama Island. It is moving in a direction θ = 49° north of west with speed v1 = 41.0 km/h. Exactly three hours later, the course of the hurricane shifts due north, and its speed slows to v2 = 19.5 km/h, as shown below. How far from Grand Bahama is the hurricane 4.0 h after it passes over the island?
I don't think anyone can help here without your map.
It won't let me paste the map :(. I don't even know where to begin.
As it passes over Grand Bahama Island, the
eye of a hurricane is moving in a direction 25
north of west with a speed of 36 km/h. Three
hours later, it shifts due north, and its speed
slows to 30 km/h.
How far from Grand Bahama is the eye 4.50
h after it passes over the island?
Answer in units of km
