Question

Step 1

Let us consider earth as a reference frame, v_{u} be the velocity of boat travelling upstream, and v_{d} be the velocity of boat travelling downstream.

Step 2

Write the expression for distance travelled in 15 min upstream, and total distance travelled.

Step 3

Let t’ be the time taken for the chest and boat to reach ...
