Homework Help: Need help on 2 questions

  1. May 26, 2006 #1
    Hey if anyone could help me out with these questions that would be great. Thx!

    1.A passenger walks from one side of a ferry to the other as it approaches a dock. If the passenger's velocity is 1.50 m/s due north relative to the ferry, and 4.5 m/s at an angle of 30.0° west of north relative to the water, what are the direction and magnitude of the ferry's velocity relative to the water?

    Vector A points in the negative x direction. Vector B points at an angle of 30.0° above the positive x axis. Vector C has a magnitude of 11 m and points in a direction 39.0° below the positive x axis. Given that A + B + C = 0, find the magnitudes of A and B.
