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 reach the edge of a 4.2 m waterfall. If the spy's speed is 20 m/s and the officials' speed is 24 m/s, how far apart will the two vessels be when they land below the waterfall?
