The eye of a hurricane passes over Grand Bahama Island. It is moving in a direction θ = 49° north of west with speed v1 = 41.0 km/h. Exactly three hours later, the course of the hurricane shifts due north, and its speed slows to v2 = 19.5 km/h, as shown below. How far from Grand Bahama is the hurricane 4.0 h after it passes over the island?
