1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A boat is capable of a constant speed of 4 m/s in a river that is flowing at 2 m/s. If the captain wishes to land 10m downriver while crossing a 50m river, then at what angle should the boat be aimed? 2. Relevant equations [/PLAIN] [Broken] Relative Velocity Equation 3. The attempt at a solution He went over this problem after handing our tests back, but this was the last question and he was rushing as class was almost over. This is the information I have: B=Boat, S=Shore, R=River He found θ by taking tan^-1(10/50) and ended up getting 11.3°. Then he went on to find the x and y components. For the x component, I have written down: V(B/S)x = -V(B/R)x + V(R/S)x -> V(B/S) sin11.3° = -4sinΩ + 2. For the y-component, I have written: V(B/S)y = V(B/R)y + V(R/S)y -> V(B/S) cos 11.3° = 4cosΩ.
