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 5.1
m waterfall. The spy’s speed is 17 m/s and
the oﬃcials’ speed is 26 m/s.
How far apart will the two vessels be when
they land below the waterfall? The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s
