Related Research One application that we can relate in the experiment entitled resolution of forces is the  physics   of   sailing.   The   main   topic   that   we  can   relate   to  the   experiment   is   asking   the  questions: why the boat does not drifts sideways when sailing upwind and can a boat sail  faster than the wind. Many said that a boat can sail faster with the wind, is true. Also they say  that it is harder to sail against the wind, well, that is not the case. We can tell that by  answering the questions above.   The answer in the first question is just because of Vector Addition. The boat definitely  drifts sideways when sailing upwind but because of the keel, a large nearly flat under the  boat is reducing it to minimal extent. The keel pushes the water sideways thus the water is  exerting a force, F k

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
