Question

Hello,

(a) In what direction would the ship in Exercise 3.57 have to travel in order to have a velocity straight north relative to the Earth, assuming its speed relative to the water remains

7.00 m/s

(b) What would its speed be relative to the Earth?fully is what you're asking for.

Exeecise 3.57 is provided below:

A ship sets sail from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, heading due north at 7.00 m/s relative to the water. The local ocean current is 1.50 m/s in a direction

40.0º north of east. What is the velocity of the ship relative to the Earth?

Step 1

First resolve the velocity in x and y direction

Step 2

Part (a): Direction of ship:

Since the horizontal component of the velocity of boat relative to ground is zero.

Step 3

Part (b): Ship’s relative speed:

The velocity is only in ver...
