Solution Summary

The solution provides detailed calculations, explanations and a drawing for the problem.

A boat is pulledinto a dock by means of a winch 12 feet above the deck of the boat.
(a) the winch pulls in rope at a rate of 4 feet per second. Determine the speed of the boat when there is 13 feet of rope out. What happens to the speed of the boat as it gets closer to dock?
(b) Suppose the boat is moving at a constant r

A boat is pulledinto a dock by a rope attached to the bow of the boat and passing through a pulley on the dock that is 1m higher than the bow of the boat. If the rope is pulled in at a rate of 1m/s, how fast is the boat approaching the dock when it is 8m from the dock?

2 (a) If A is the area of a circle with radius r and the circle expands as time passes, find dA/dt in terms of dr/dt
(b) Suppose oil spills from a ruptured tanker and spreads in a circular pattern. If the radius of the oil spill increases at a constant rate of 1m/s how fast is the area of the spill increasing when the radius

b) Find the tension in rope B.

How many fish should a commercial fisherman try to catch in a day? Should he catch as many as possible or return to dock before filling the boatwith fish? Under what economic circumstances should he not even take the boat out?

A uniform rope of mass m and length l is attached to a block of mass M. The rope is pulledwith force, F. Find the tension at distance x from the end of the rope. Neglect gravity.

Relative Velocity Problem
Consider a boat on the West bank of a river of width D=1664 meters to be at the origin of an x,y axis system with the 0° direction East along the +x axis.
The river water runs South with velocity vector W= 3.9 m/sec at 270°.
At coordinates (1200, -390) is a dock on an island. At coordinates (16
