Answer to Question #2379 in Mechanics | Relativity for Angela
A stream is flowing at a speed of 3.0km/h relative to the bank. A boy who can swim at 2.0km/h in still water enters the stream and proceeds to swim downstream. At a certain point he is approaching a boat going upstream. The boat has a speed of 20km/h relative to the stream. To an observer on the shore, the boat and the boy are approaching each other at a speed of?
The speed of& the boy relative to a stream is& 2 km/h, relative to the observer& - 2 + 3 = 5 km/h, the speed of the boat relative to the observer is 20 - 3 = 17 km/h. Thus the boy approaches the boat at speed of 5 km/h and the boat approaches the boy at a speed of 17 km/h relarive to the observer on the shore.
I don’t know how to thank this company ...y’all made my life so easy with school. Honestly it’s been tough to catch up with classes after giving birth and knowing how hard it would be to do my assignments. Never regret meeting this company at all! And I have referred almost all my family members who are currently in school struggling. I don’t know how much love I got for y’all. The customer service is an A+. Sometimes I say to myself “they are just too perfect” . Lol please keep up the good work.
