Answer to Question #62045 in Other Physics for Allie
A swimmer sets out across a 300-meter wide river maintaining a speed of 2.0 m/s relative to the water. If he starts from the West Bank of the river, which flows south of 1.0 m/s, in what direction should he head to reach the other bank at a point just opposite to his starting point? How long will it take him to make the trip? Can he reach the opposite side faster if he heads in
some other direction? Explain.
