v(x) =x/t =>

t=x/v⒳=x/v₀•cosα

y=v₀⒴•t +gt²/2 =

= v₀⒴• x/v₀•cosα +g•x²/2v₀²•cos²α=

=x•tanα + g•x²/2v₀²•cos²α.

v₀=sqrt{g•x²/2•cos²α(y-x•tan α)}=

=sqrt{9.8•92²/2•0.97•(47-92•tan10)}=

=37.3 m/s.

A rowboat crosses a river with a velocity of 4.23 mi/h at an angle 62.5o north of west relative to the water. The river is 0.543 mi wide and carries an eastward current of 0.73 mi/h. How far upstream is the boat when it reaches the opposite shore?
