A 301-kg boat is sailing 16.5 north of east at a speed of 2.08 m/s. Thirty seconds later, it is sailing 37.2 north of east at a speed of 3.60 m/s. During this time, three forces act on the boat: a 32.7-N force directed 16.5 north of east (due to an auxiliary engine), a 21.7...

A jet makes a landing traveling due east with a speed of 100 m/s. If the jet comes to rest in 15.0 s, what is the magnitude and direction of its average acceleration? due west or due east? How can I solve this question? You don't have to give me the answer but how you derive ...
