Riverboat Problems with Examples

Riverboat Problems

Example Boat has velocity 5m/s with respect to the river. It aims to reach point A, however, because of the river speed it reaches another  point B. If the speed of current is 2m/s to the east calculate the time of trip and the distance between A and B.riverboat example1

Boat follows the path shown in dashed line which is the direction of the resultant vector.

Example Velocity of the boat with respect to river is 10 m/s. It passes the river and reaches opposite shore at point C. If the velocity of the river is 3m/s, find the time of the trip and distance between B and C.rriverboat example2
