A flock of ducks is trying to migrate south for the winter, but they keep being blown off course by a wind blowing from the west at 11{\rm m/s} . A wise elder duck finally realizes that the solution is to fly at an angle to the wind.If the ducks can fly at 17{\rm m/s} relative to the air, in what direction should they head in order to move directly south?

    At the instant the traffic light turns green, an automobile that has been waiting at an intersection starts ahead with a constant acceleration of 2.80{\rm m}/{\rm s}^{2} . At the same instant, a truck, traveling with a constant speed of 14.8{\rm m}/{\rm s} , overtakes and passes the automobile.
