Homework No. 1 Vector components O a = 5 m/s 2 υ = 20 m/s x 1 y 1 x 2 y 2 50° 30° 20° CHANG 1 A boat is traveling along a curved path, and when it reaches point O the acceleration of the boat and the velocity of the wind a G υ G are shown in the figure. Find the components of both vectors with respect to x 1 - y 1 as well as x 2 - y 2 coordinate systems. Ans : a x 1 = 2.5 m/s 2 , a y 1 = 4.33 m/s 2 ; a x 2 = 3.83 m/s 2 , a y 2 = 3.21 m/s 2 ; υ x 1 = 15.3 m/s, υ y 1 = 12.9 m/s; υ x 2 = 10 m/s, υ y 2 = 17.3 m/s
