A laser beam in air is incident on a liquid at an angle of 40.0^\circ with respect to the normal. The laser beam's angle in the liquid is 25.0^\circ.What is the liquid's index of refraction? PLEASE HELP!!!

**Physics **

A boat crosses a river of width 113 m in which the current has a uniform speed of 0.933 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 2.58 m/s relative to the ...

**RATE, DISTANCE, TIME**

TIM PADDLED HIS KAYAK 12 KM UPSTREAM AGAINST A 3 KM/H CURRENT AND BACK AGAIN IN 5 HR 20 MINUTES. iN THAT TIME HOW FAR COULD HE HAVE PADDLED IN STILL WATER 12/(v+3) + 12/(v-3) = 5.33 hours Solve for this speed in still water, v. 12(v-3) + 12(v+3) = 5.33 (v^2 -9) 24 v = 5.33 v^2...

**Maths**

A river flows at 3km/h. At what speed must a boat travel in order to make a 35km trip upstream in a time of 50 minutes? How long will it take the boat to make the return trip downstream? (Assume the boat retains the speed travelled upstream) Working out please

Dayle is paddling his canoe upstream, against the current, to a fishing spot 10 miles always. If he paddles upstream for 2.5 hours and his return trip takes 1.25 hours, find the speed of the current, and his still water????????

Write an equation for the line that passes through (0,7) and is perpendicular to the line whose equation is y = 1/2x-1. my answer is y = 2x-7 is this correct? That can't be right, because when x=0, y must be 7. Furthermore, the slope of the line you want must be -2, to be ...

36 Upstream, downstream. Junior’s boat will go 15 miles per hour in still water. If he can go 12 miles downstream in the same amount of time as it takes to go 9 miles upstream, then what is the speed of the current?
