A boat sets off perpendicular to the bank, to cross a river width of 250m. The speed of the boat in still water is 3.20ms-1, however there is a current downstream at 1.20ms-1, which puss the boat sideways.
a) Find the resultant velocity of the boat.
b) Find the total distance the boat travels in crossing the river.
