Problem 59PE

Problem 59PE

(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?

Exercise 3.57:

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-by-Step Solution:

## Step 1 of 2

The direction of and the magnitude of the water with respect to the earth is given. The magnitude of the velocity of the sheep with respect to the water and the resultant direction of the sheep with respect to the earth is given. Calculate the direction of the velocity of the sheep with respect to the water.
