- A boat moves through the water with two forces acting on it. One is a 1,875-N forward push by the water on the propeller, and the other is a 1,400-N resistive force due to the water around the bow.

(a) What is the acceleration of the 1,100-kg boat?

(b) If it starts from rest, how far will the boat move in 17.5 s?

(c) What will its velocity be at the end of that time?
