Question about RTO 14 Foot - Strip Built Wood "puddle Duck" Canoe

# Find the magnitude of the velocity of the canoe relative to the r

A canoe has a velocity of 0.340 m/s southeast relative to the earth. The canoe is on a river that is flowing 0.570 m/s east relative to the earth.

Find the direction of the velocity of the canoe relative to the river.
Express your answer as an angle measured south of west.

Firstly, though the answer is expressed as an angle "south" of west, the canoe will be traveling southeast, so the degree should be read south of east, not south of west. The ultimate velocity of the canoe will me 1.065 m/s.  The direction is 22 degrees south of east, or 158 degrees from West, but not 158 degrees south of west, since beyond 90 degrees south of west you have south. I used trig and I passed calculus so I'm pretty sure i'm right.

### Calculate the speed of the wave that has a frequency of 3 GHz and a wavelength of 4mm

For a plane wave in a homogeneous medium, the phase velocity of the wave is related to the frequency and the wavelength by the relation
velocity = wave_length*frequency
In this case
velocity (in m/s)=(4*10^-3 m )*(3*10^9 s^-1)=12*10^(9-3)=12*10^6
Thus velocity=1.2*10^7 m/s

### Southeast

Do you mean "agriculture"? The southeast region of where? The agriculture of southeast Australia is quite different from the agriculture of southeast Europe.

### Does speedometer notworking have anything to do with the transmission not going into overdrive?

A speedometer shows speed, which is the magnitude of velocity. It does not show velocity, which is a vector, meaning it includes a direction. So speedometer notworking have nothing to do with the transmission not going into overdrive. Know more diagnostic tool for car.

### My husband would like to start canoeing with our 10 and 8year old kids. He is a beginner and would like to take them fishing and just relaxing trips. Do you recommend a canoe?

Canoes are great for family outings in water and they are relatively easy to use even for children as young as 6yrs, (if accompanied by an adult). Paddling is quite simple and although it may feel tippy, canoes are really quite stable in the water. Make sure the adult is in the stern of the boat so he can steer and see what the other passengers are doing.

### Aluminum canoes

Well-made aluminum canoes are rugged and most dents can be punched out. They are the ultimate no-maintenance canoe. Even when left outdoors all year, neither rain nor snow affects them and they will not take on weight with age. They are rigged with flotation air tanks or foam compartments to render them unsinkable. On the downside, aluminum canoes are noisy, tend to cling to (rather than glide over) rocks, and conduct heat and cold. Most aluminum canoes carry their beam well forward and aft so that they push rather than cut through the water. This hull design, however, makes them initially more stable and increases their carrying capacity.

### Infatable canoe

Inflatable canoes have considerable appeal for certain uses. When folded they are quite compact and their weight - about twenty to thirty pounds - makes them ideal for toting to remote fishing waters or for storage in today's small car trunks. The better-quality versions are made of heavy-duty vinyl-coated polyester, or PVC, with multiple air compartments (so if one compartment springs a leak, you still have some flotation). Restrictions include speed, since inflatables are relatively slow, and they have minimal carrying capacity. Repair kits are a must on most trips. Also, you will want to have a foot pump to inflate the canoe before starting out.

### Canoes type

For fishing, a canoe with extra stability will increase your enjoyment as well as your safety, so a wider canoe, one that is 36" or wider with a flat bottom (versus a V bottom) is a good choice.
