A man at point A directs his rowboat due north toward point B, straight across a river of
width 100 m. The river current is due east. The man starts across, rowing steadily at 2.50
m/s and reaches the other side of the river at point C, 150 m downstream from his starting
point. While the man is crossing the river, what is his velocity relative to the shore?
