1. If the angle of the boat is 150 degrees, v' = 3 m/s, and v0 = 3.0 m/s, how far do you drift downstream before you arrive at the other side of the river? (HINT: read the x axis.)

2. If the river flow rate (v0) = 3.0 m/s, and the angle (è, or “theta”) is 150 degrees, what v' (velocity of the boat) would be required to end up directly across the river?

3. If the angle remains 150 degrees, and the boat velocity (v') is 3.0 m/s, but the river flow rate is increased to 4.0 m/s, how far would you drift downstream before you arrived at the other side of the river?
