A motorboat going downstream overcame a raft at a point A;

• = 60 min later it turned back and after some time passed the raft

at a distance l = 6.0 km from the point A. Find the flow velocity

assuming the duty of the engine to be constant.

2. Relevant equations

---------------------------------

3. The attempt at a solution

I assumed the stream velocity as v_{0}and the velocity of the motorboat with respect to water as v^{'}. The motorboat reached point B while going downstream with velocity (v_{0}+ v^{'}) and then returned with velocity (v^{'}- v_{0}) and passed the raft at point C . Then I assumed t to be the time for the raft to move from point A to C , during which the motorboatboat moves from A to B and then from B to C .

But after this I have no idea how to proceed .
