two canoeists start paddling at the same time and head toward a small island in a lake. caneist 1 paddles with a speed of 1.35 m/s at an angle of 45 degrees north of east. canoeist 2 starts on the opposite shore of the lake,a distance of 1.5 km due east of canoeist 1. what speed must canoeist 2 have if the two canoes are to arrive at the island at the same time?
