Answer to Question #15701 in Mechanics | Relativity for bron padgett
a ship is heading due west at a steady speed of 15km/hr. a current of 3km/hr is running due south. calculate the velocity of the ship relative to the seabed.(hint: the velocity of the ship plus the velocity of the current will add up to the total velocity of the ship relative to the seabed.)
West and south directions are perpendicular. So, according to the Pythagorean theorem the velocity of the ship relative to the seabed is
V = √((15[km/h])² + (3[km/h])²) = √234[km/h] ≈ 15.3[km/h].
I'm highly satisfied with the quality of your work. Thank you very much!
While I'm very impressed with the math, physics and find computer science help perfect... It was still hard for me to find electrical engineering help with your site.
One of the areas I will need help with are circuit analysis.
