In the Coral Sea the East Australian Current flows 0.9m/s 22.0° West of South. A sea turtle riding the current, dude, swims due East at 2.58m/s. A fish desperate to find his son, Nemo, is moving across the turtles back at 0.25m/s at 35.0° South of East.
a. What is the turtle's velocity?
b. What is the fish's velocity?
c. How many stripes does the fish have?
^^that is a legitimate question on my homework XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think c is a trick question XD he didn't specify which color stripes lol anyhoo, can you help me with the actual problems? cx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is how i drew my graph may not be correct because currents confuse me sometimes. dw:1443218314286:dw this is kinda just for reference I think we just need to go ahead and find the x and y values for each vector and add them up.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how'd you draw the vectors?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so now I break them up into components like normal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so ill make my lists dw:1443218569870:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes break into components

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so the first set is the current, the second is the turtle, and the last is the fish?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait.. why did you subtract 22 from 270?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait.. nevermind cx I keep going back to the reference drawing and answering my own question XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1woe woe woe.. why is the second one 360?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alright so considering its right on the x axis pointing to positive infinity you could say either cos(0) or cos(360)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why isn't it 180?..

sweetburger

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1and for the y values it would be the same value for sin(0) sin(360)

sweetburger

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1180 is on the x axis pointing towards negative infinity

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1all your x values turn negative and you y values stay 0 when the angle is 180

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the angles i showed above will give you the same exact value lets use something from the question above .25m/s cos (335) = .227 if you say .25m/s cos(695) it also equals .227 the 695 came from (360+335)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1O.O so what do I do?

sweetburger

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i think this was a simpler 2 part problem in which we subtract the current vector from the speed vector the for the turtle to find the speed of the turtle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I have to go :O thanks for the help.. I may come back tomorrow to ask for more help XD

sweetburger

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then using the found speed of the turlte combine the vector of the fish
