with an average speed of 10 ms−1 in still water. Prepare a possible schedule for the ferry showing the departure and arrival times between 0060 hours and 1800 hours at jetty A and jetty B. for the journey is . The velocity of the current on a day is shown in the graph below. where θ◦ = 60◦ − sin−1 20 30 and the time taken.Mathematics (T) Assignment Question Lee Kian Keong 1 Mathematics (T) Assignment Question Velocity represents the direction and speed of a moving object. 2 . The actual direction and speed of the ferry is the resultant velocity obtained by the addition of the two velocities. 1. 4. where v < 10. cos θ◦ (b) Suppose that the current ﬂows from east to west with a speed of v ms−1 . Write down the course on which the ferry must be steered in order to return from jetty B to jetty A and the time taken for the return journey in the case where the current ﬂows from west to east and the case where the current ﬂows from east to west. 2. A ferry moving in the sea is subjected to its own velocity and the velocity of the current. Based on the possible schedule you obtained in part 3. Jetty A on the mainland and jetty B on a resort island are 36 km apart. travels between jetty A and jetty B. ﬁnd similar expressions for the course on which the ferry must be steered in order to travel from jetty A to jetty B and the time taken for the journey. There are three such ferries plying between jetty A and jetty B each day. The bearing of jetty B is 060◦ from jetty A. where positive values of v mean that the current ﬂows from west to east. 3. The duration of embarkation and disembarkation at each jetty is 20 minutes. Each jetty allows embarkation and disembarkation of only one ferry at a time. the speed of the current many be assumed to be uniform and is taken as the speed at the beginning of the journey. For each journey. Using a vector method. in minutes. prepare an operating schedule for the three ferries showing the departure time between 0600 hours and 1800 hours at jetty A and jetty B. A ferry. where v < 10. Using a vector method. (a) Suppose that the current ﬂows from west to east with a speed of v ms−1 . show that the course on which the ferry must be steered in v order to travel from jetty A to jetty B is θ◦ east of north.
