Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Greg Knightly on Thursday, November 8, 2012 at 8:57am.

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 relative to the water.

A.) What is the magnitude of the speed of the boat relative to a stationary shore observer? Answer in units of m/s.

B.)How far downstream from the initial position is the boat when it reaches the opposite shore? Answer in units of m
