Problem 12P

Rubber Ducks A severe storm on January 10,1992, caused a cargo ship near the Aleutian Islands to spill 29,000 rubber ducks and other bath toys into the ocean. Ten months later hundreds of rubber ducks began to appear along the shoreline near Sitka, Alaska, roughly 1600 miles away. What was the approximate average speed of the ocean current that carried the ducks to shore in (a) m/s and (b) mi/h? (Rubber ducks from the same spill began to appear on the coast of Maine in July 2003.)

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 12P

Step 1 of 2

We are required to calculate the average speed of ocean current in m/s and mi/h.

Part b

Distance traveled by the rubber ducks  = 1600 miles

Time taken = 10 months

months

h

h

Therefore, the speed in mi/h is mi/h

mi/h
