Physics 12 - Quiz
Crossing the Fraser
a) The vector equation for the velocity of the boat with respect to the
shore is given by,
Vbs = Vbw + Vws
where Vbw = 3.5 m/s in the assigned direction of East
2.5 m/s in the assigned direction of South
b) We can now draw the vector diagram the represents the vector equation.
c) We can now use our knowledge of trigonometry to solve for the velocity
of the boat w.r.t. the shore, Vbs.
