Problem 85CP

Problem 85CP

A child in danger of drowning in a river is being carried downstream by a current that flows uniformly with a speed of 2.0 m/s. The child is 200 m from the shore and 1500 m upstream of the boat dock from which the rescue team sets out. If their boat speed is 8.0 m/s with respect to the water, at what angle from the shore should the pilot leave the shore to go directly to the child?

Step-by-Step Solution:
