Question

A fish swimming in a horizontal plane has velocity given by v i j i = 4ˆ + ˆ  m/s at a point in the
ocean where the position relative to a certain rock is r i j i = 10ˆ − 4 ˆ  m. After the fish swims
with constant acceleration for 20.0 s, its velocity is v i j = 20ˆ − 5 ˆ  m/s.
a) What are the components of the acceleration of the fish?
b) What is the direction of its acceleration with respect to the unit vector along the x axis?
c) If the fish maintains constant acceleration, where is it at t = 25.0 s and in what direction is
it moving?
