Textbook Problem

The eye of a hurricane passes over Grand Bahama Island in a direction 60.0° north of west with a speed of 41.0 km/h. Three hours later the course of the hurricane suddenly shifts due north, and its speed slows to 25.0 km/h. How far from Grand Bahama is the hurricane 4.50 h after it passes over the island?

To determine
The distance of Grand Bhama from the island.

Explanation

Given Info: The hurricane is moving 3h at 41km/h , then 123km at 60° North of west from island. In the next, it travels 37.5km due to North.

Explanation:

The x component of the total travel distance,

x=[(123km)cos(60)]=61.5km

The y component of the total travel distance,

y=[(123km)sin(60)]+[(37
