## Homework Statement

A swimmer is moving 30 degrees south of east at a constant speed of 5mph relative to the water. A current is flowing 30 degrees west of north at a constant speed of 1.5mph.

Find the velocity of the swimmer relative to the shore. After 2 hours, what is the swimmers displacement? How FAR is the swimmer from his target position if he swam unaware of the current?

## Homework Equations

Vsl = Vsw + Vwl

Vox = Vo(cos30)

Voy = Vo(sin30)

## The Attempt at a Solution

Vox = 5cos30 = 4.33

Voy = 5sin30 = 2.5
