A swimmer is capable of swimming 0.95 m/s in still water.
(a) If she aims her body directly across a 150 m wide river whose current is 0.55 m/s, how far downstream (from a point opposite her starting point) will she land? (m)
(b) How long will it take her to reach the other side?(s)© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com February 24, 2021, 2:38 pm ad1c9bdddf
The velocity of the swimmer perpendicular to the direction of the stream
vp = 0.95 m/s
width of the river
w = 150 m
velocity of the stream
vs = ...
