Therefore, we conclude that ˜ v 1 = 3 7 V i When the woman dives, her speed relative to the boat is V and she’s moving in the negative x direction. Since the boat is moving at a speed of 3 7 V in the negative x direction, the woman’s absolute velocity at the moment she dives is 10 7 V i . Denoting the velocity of the boat by
