A spy in a speed boat is being chased down a river by government officials in a faster craft. Just as the officials’ boat pulls up next to the spy’s boat, both boats reach the edge of a 5.2 m waterfall. The spy’s speed is 15 m/s and the officials’ speed is 25 m/s.
How far apart will the two vessels be when they land below the waterfall? The accelera- tion of gravity is 9.81 m/s2 .
Answer in units of m
