# Downstream 7002

A rowboat sailing down a river covers a distance of 120 m downstream in 12 s and upstream in 24 s. Find the magnitude of the ship's velocity relative to the water and the current in the river. Both speeds are constant.

The water in the river has a speed of 4.8 km/h relative to the bank. A boat in still water has a speed of 12.6 km/h. a) What is the boat's speed relative to the shore if it is sailing downstream and upstream of the river? b) What path will the boat travel - A boat

A boat covers 20 km in an hour downstream and covers the same distance in 2 hours upstream. Then, find the speed of the boat in still water and the speed of the stream. - Water current speed.

Two cities along the river are 100 km apart. The powerboat downstream runs for 4 hours, upstream for 10 hours. Determines the river's current speed. - The ship

The ship went at the upstream speed of 20 km/h in relation to water. The river flows at a speed of 10 km/h. After half an hour, he stopped and returned downstream to the starting point. How long does it take back when even if the downstream speed of the s

- River current

In a river, a man takes 3 hours in rowing 3 km upstream or 15 km downstream. What is the speed of the current? - Relative 67684

The boat moves along the river at a speed of v1 = 5km. h-1 and upstream v2 = 2km. h-1. What is the current P's and boat L's speed relative to the water? - Steamship

Between the two ports on the river is going steamship. The journey there and back takes 8:42. Downstream steamship traveling at 20 km/h, upstream 9 km/h. What is the distance between the ports?
