Suzie Surefoot can paddle a canoe in still water at 8 km/h. How successful will she be at canoeing upstream in a river that flows at 8 km/h?

Solution 2E Introduction In this problem we have to find out the resultant velocity of the canoe with respect to ground Step 1 The if water is moving atwg velocity with respect to ground and canoe is moving cw velocity with respect to water, then the velocity of canoe with respect to ground will be v cg= vcw+ vwg Step 2 Let us consider the direction of the water is in the positive direction. Hence the upstream direction will be negative. So the velocities of the water and canoe will be v wg= 8 km/h And v cw= 8 km/h
