A Boat at Dock A wants to go to Dock B Straight across. Docks are 100m Apart. Vh=4m/s

A) If Vo1m=6m/s find the direction he must aim boat (theta) to go straight to dock B

B)Find time it takes to get to dock B

C)If he aims boat directly north where will he land on the other side

-------------------Dock B----------------------

Vh=4m/s~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 100m

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |

~~~~~~~~~~~~Boat ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ |

-------------------Dock A----------------------

2. Relevant equations

A) I truly have no idea

B)Vf=Vi+at maybe?

C)Once again, if I knew I would probably have more luck

3. The attempt at a solution

I wish I knew enough to attempt it..

Thank you for any help you can offer! I am more interested in methods rather than answers
