##### Reference no: EM13719454

Problem: A passenger walks from one side of a ferry to the other as it approaches a dock. If the passenger's velocity is 1.90 m/s due north relative to the ferry, and 4.5 m/s at an angle of 25.0° west of north relative to the water,

Part A: What are the direction and magnitude of the ferry's velocity relative to the water?

I need help to find the direction and magnitude of the ferry's velocity relative to the water.
