  1. (33 points) In the problem below, the velocity of the boat, vb, is 15 m/s. The velocity of the current, vc is 5 m/s. The width of the river is 125 m.
    Load me to find out what the problem is about!
    1. How long does it take the boat to reach the other side of the river?

    2. How far does the boat move horizontally along the river in this time. (What is the horizontal distance from where the boat starts to the large X?)

    3. With what total (resultant) speed does the is boat move?

  2. (33 points) In the figure below, a ball rolls off of a table horizontally with a speed of 3.6 m/s. The table is 1.54 m tall. Use 9.8 m/s2 for the acceleration of gravity (g).

    1. How long does it take for the ball to reach the ground?

    2. How far away from the table (horizontally) does it land?

    3. How fast is the ball moving when it hits the ground?

  3. (33 points) A football punter kicks a ball at an angle of 72° with a speed of 15 m/s.
    1. How far down the field does the ball travel?

    2. What is the maximum height reached by the ball?

    3. How long is the ball in the air?
