At the entrance channel of a harbor, the tidal current has a velocity of 4.94 km/hr in a direction 23.2° south of east. Suppose a ship caught in this current has a speed of 15.6 km/hr relative to the water. If the helmsman keeps the bow of the ship aimed north, what will be ...

A diver springs upward with an initial speed of 2.0 m/s from a 2.5-m board. Find the velocity with which he strikes the water. Hint: When the diver reaches the water, his displacement is y = -2.5 m (measured from the board), assuming that the downward direction is chosen as ...

In a cathode ray tube, electrons initially at rest are accelerated by a uniform electric field of magnitude 4.71 x 105 N/C during the first 5.49 cm of the tube's length; then they move at essentially constant velocity another 47.9 cm before hitting the screen. Find the speed ...
