So the first car is faster. 13.2.8 In components, we have ~v = 10cos(45 ) ~ i 10sin(45 ) ~ j = (5 2) ~ i (5 2) ~ j = 7 . 07 ~ i 7 . 07 ~ j . Notice that the coefficient in the ~ jdirection must be negative. The components are 5 2 ~ i and 5 2 ~ j . 13.2.12 (a) The velocity vector for the boat ~ b = 25 ~ i and the velocity vector for the current is ~ c = 10cos(45 ) ~ i 10sin(45 ) ~ j = 7 . 07 ~ i 7 . 07 ~ j. The actual velocity of the boat is ~ b + ~ c = 17 . 93 ~ i 7 . 07 ~ j. (b) k ~ b + ~ c k = 19 . 27 km/hr. (c) We see in the figure below that tan = 7 . 07 17 . 93 , so = 21 . 52 south of east. 7.07 17.93 b c + c b 1 13.2.14 The velocity vector of the plane with respect to the air has the form ~v = a ~ i + 80 ~ k where k ~v k = 480 ....
