Problem 2 (20 points) A sailing ship of mass, m , is initially at rest, i.e. v(0) = 0 . At time t = 0, a strong wind arises of magnitude V o = 10m/s Vo m v(t) Assume that the force of the wind on the sails in the direction of travel is given by F w (t) = B w [V o œ v(t)] Assume that the viscous drag of the water on the ship is given by
