# Question: In a 500 m stretch of a river the speed of

In a 500-m stretch of a river, the speed of the current is a steady 5.0 m/s. How long does a boat take to finish a round trip (upstream and downstream) if the speed of the boat is 7.5 m/s relative to still water?

## Relevant Questions

A moving walkway in an airport is 75 m long and moves at a speed of 0.60 m/s. A passenger, after traveling 25 m while standing on the walkway, starts to walk at a speed of 0.50 m/s relative to the surface of the walk-way. ...If the flow rate of the current in a straight river is greater than the speed of a boat in the water, the boat cannot make a trip directly across the river. Prove this statement. A hockey puck slides along a horizontal ice surface at 20.0 m/s, hits a flat vertical wall, and bounces off. Its initial velocity vector makes an angle of 35o with the wall and it comes off at an angle of 25o moving at 10.0 ...In Exercise 36, what if the elevator is accelerating down at 2.00 m/s?
