Mission VP6: Relative Velocity and River Boats


Mission VP6 focuses on the scenario of a motorized boat crossing a river in the presence of a current. The mission consists of 37 questions organized into 9 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to recognize the interdependence of the various kinematic and vector quantities associated with the motion of a river boat across a river in the presence of a current.
  • The student should be able to calculate the values of the various kinematic quantities (time, distance, and velocity) for the motion of a river boat across a river in the presence of a current.
