A man can swim with a speed of 4.0 km/h in still water. How long does he take to cross a river 1.0 km wide if the river flows steadily at 3.0 km/h and he makes his strokes normal to the river current? How far down the river does he go when he reaches the other bank?

Show that for a projectile the angle between the velocity and the *x*-axis as a function of time is given by

`theta(t) =tan^(-1) ((v_(0y) - "gt")/v_(o x))`

A bullet fired at an angle of 30° with the horizontal hits the ground 3.0 km away. By adjusting its angle of projection, can one hope to hit a target 5.0 km away? Assume the *muzzle *speed to the fixed, and neglect air resistance.

Show that the projection angle `theta_o` for a projectile launched from the origin is given by

`theta_o =tan^(-1) ((4h_m)/R)`
