    Crossing a River

    A swimmer wants to cross a river, from point A to point B. The distance d_1 (from A to C) is 200 m, the distance d_2 (from C to B) is 1500 m, and the speed V_r of the current in the river is 5 km/h. Suppose that the swimmer makes an angle of 45 degrees(0.785 radians) with respect to the line...

    Constant velocity formula help

    can someone tell me what these formulas do? constant velocity(when velocity is constant, which is 0 right?, you use these formulas)... 1.) a(t) = 0 <== when constant velocity, a(t) = 0 right? 2.) v(t) = Vi(what is v(t)? vi = initial) 3.) x(t) = Xi + ViT (what is this formula used for...

    Caculating time

    A Honda Civic travels in a straight line along a road. Its distance xfrom a stop sign is given as a function of time t by the equation x(t) = 1.53m/s^2*t^2 - 5.10×10-2 m/s^3*t^3 Question #1. Calculate the average velocity of the car for the time interval t=0 to t1=1.93s. answer is in m/s...
