Motorboat downstream problem (mechanics)

  1. Jul 15, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A motorboat going downstream overcomes a float at point A . 60 min. later it turns and after some time passes the boat at a distance of 12 km from point A. the velocity of stream is (assuming constant vel. of boat in still water)

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
