  1. Feb 22, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A motorboat is going downstream overcame a raft at a Point A; t=60 min later it turned back and after some time passed the raft at a distance l=6km from point A. Find the flow velocity assuming the duty of the engine to be constant.

    2. Relevant equations
    Average Velocity, Average Speed, Displacement

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I drew a picture and labeled everything. I know the average velocity of the motorboat is 6km per hour.
