1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Imagine the following. You and your best friend are at sea on your ship. Your ship is designed to withstand seas during 120 knot winds. You measure the winds outside your ship at 30 knots. From satellite images and Global Positioning System (GPS) data, you pinpoint your position at 60 nautical miles from the centre of a hurricane. The satellite image shows that the eye of the hurricane hasn't changed position in hours and that the diameter of the eye is 20 nautical miles. The forecast from the National Hurricane Center has (correctly) forecast that the hurricane will not intensify. Your best friend thinks that the way to survive the storm is to head to the hurricane's eye where winds and the sea will be calm. What is your reply to your friend's suggestion? Explain your reasoning. 2. Relevant equations None given. 3. The attempt at a solution Think her suggestion is wrong because the eye of the storm is well known to be calm , she is not considering the fact that we have to go through the axis of rotation. Also, I'm having trouble understanding how I am suppose to use the numbers provided, is there a formula that would better supplement my reasoning.
