2. ()A fishing boat sets its course at heading of N40E, with a speed of 40 knots. The water current is flowing from a bearing of S65W, at/10 25 knots. Determine the resultant velocity of the fishing boat using 2 different methods (one with geometric vectors, the other with cartesian vectors) Note: Round your answer(s) to the nearest tenth of a knot or tenth of a degree. State your final direction using quadrant bearings. (b)Another fishing boat(100 km north of the above fishing boat originally) is travelling at a maximum speed of 55 knots towards a bearing of S45E. Assuming the same water current from above would the two boats ever hit each other? Demonstrate your logic both diagrammatically and by showing clear steps and explanations Maybe useful information: 1 knot 1.852 km/h =0.514444 m/s Part (a) checklist:/5 Properly labeled vector diagram diagram should be “roughly to scale All known values are labelled in the diagram Any unknown values used in the solution are labelled with a variable Cartesian vectors defined Algebraic steps are clear for a reader to follow in both methods Final statement is a sentence that directly answers the question asked Part (b) checklist/5 Vector diagram that represents the scenario Algebraic steps are clear for a reader to follow Final statements are sentences that directly answer the questions asked Insert all your work below:
