1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A boat which can travel at 5.6 m/s in still water heads due east across a river (185m wide) from a dock at a point X. The boat's resultant path is 32(degrees) south of east. a)What is the speed of the current? b)How long will it take the boat to reach the far shore if the river is 185m wide? 2. Relevant equations Vwg = Vwb + Vbg 3. The attempt at a solution Here is what I did for a) : First I wrote down what I was given: dx = 185m vx= Vbw = 5.6m/s (theta) = 32(degrees) then I went: Tan(32) = Vwg / Vbw Tan(32) = Vwg / 5.6 (Tan(32))(5.6) = Vwg 3.499268371 = Vwg 3.5m/s = Vwg then for b) I went: Vx = dx/t t = dx/vx t = 185/5.6 t = 33.03571429 t = 33s could someone please check these to see if they are correct, I just want to see if I am doing it correctly before moving on to other questions. Furthermore, could some please draw a vector diagram for "part A" so that I could understand this question better because someone told me that a vector diagram would help me to understand this question a lot more. However, in the question sheet there is already a birds eye view of what is occurring in this question already so I was just wondering what a alternative vector diagram would look like.
