## Homework Statement

A sailboat is traveling due east, with a speed V=Vinit at time t = 0 and a constant eastward acceleration A(motor). From a time t = t(gust) to a time t=t(calm), a gust of wind gives the boat an additional acceleration A(wind) at an angle 60

^{o}North of East. Find an expression in terms of the quantities given for the North and East components of the boat's velocity at the time t(calm).

## Homework Equations

Just basic 2 dimensional kinematic like

Vfs= Vis + Ast

Sf= Si+ Vis(t) + 1/2 As(t)^2

3. The Attempt at a Solution

3. The Attempt at a Solution

I thought about this and think East components = Vinit + ( A motor + A wind (1/2)) (tcalm-t0)

and North components = A wind (√3/2) (tcalm-t0)

I mostly added the vectors of A wind and A motor, I am not sure if that is right. Please clarify or correct me if I am wrong, thank you.
