A camel sets out to cross the desert, which is 49.8 km wide in the northsouth direction. The camel walks at the uniform speed 2.64 km/hr along a straight line in the direction 50.1 north of East (only the camel knows why he chose that particular direction).
How long will it take the camel to cross the desert?
Answer in units of hr

49.8/sin(50.1)= 64.91km
t= 64.91/2.64= 24.59hr
