1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Eriks disabled boat is floating at a stationary location 3 miles East and 2 miles North of Kingston. A ferry leaves Kingston heading due East towards Edmonds at 12mph. Erik leaves the sailboat in a dingy heading due South at 10ft/sec (hoping to intercept the ferry). Edmonds is 6 miles due East of Kingston. a) Compute Eriks spead in mph and the ferrys speed in ft/sec. b) Impose a coordinate system of Erik and the ferry. What are Eriks and the ferrys locations at time 0, 30sec, 7min, and 1 hour? What are the distances between them at each time-point? c) Explain why Erik misses the ferry. d) After 10 minutes a Coast Guard boat leaves Kingston heading due East at a speed of 25ft/sec. Will the Coast Gaurd boat catch the ferry before it reached Edmonds? Explain. 2. Relevant equations distance = rate X time d=sqrt (x2-x1)^2 - (y2-y1)^2 3. The attempt at a solution a) Eriks speed is 10ft/sec or 6.818 mph The ferrys speed is 12mph or 17.604 ft/sec b)Eriks orgin is (3,2) Ferry orgin is (0,0) I am confused with how to use the coordinates to calculate their positions at certain time-points. I think to find the distances between them at the given time-points I use the following equations and substitute them into the distance formula: Erik: (3, 2-6.818) Ferry: (12,0) Any help is appreciated!
