Physics - Relative velocity
A barge is heading directly across a river at35km/h while you are walking on the barge at 4km/h in the same direction as the barge is heading. The current is flowing downstream at 1.4km/h. a) What is your velocity relative to the shore? (7.6km/h) b) What would you velocity be ...

Two people take identical jet skis across a river, traveling at the same speed relative to the water. Jet ski A heads directly across the river and is carried downstream by the current before reaching the opposite shore. Jet ski B travels in a direction that is 35° upstream, ...

physics help!!
a 3.5 kg dog stands on a 21 kg flatboat at distance D = 6.1 m from the shore. It walks 2.3 m along the boat toward shore and then stops. Assuming no friction between the boat and the water, find how far the dog is then from the shore. I thought i have the right equation but my...
