A cruise ship maintains a speed of 9 knots (nautical miles per hour) sailing from San Juan to Barbados, a distance of 600 nautical miles. To avoid a tropical storm, the captain heads out of San Juan at a direction of 37° off a direct heading to Barbados. The captain (a) Through what angle should the captain turn to head directly to Barbados?(b) Once the turn is made, how long will it be before the ship reaches Barbados if the same 9-knot speed is maintained?
It is 600 nautical miles between places, 9 knots/hr
leaving at 37 degrees.
you dont say how far/long they travel until they turn back towards the destination
but, if they head straight out until turning to make a right triangle (53 degrees) then… the length from the 53 degree turn to the destination would be
divide that by 9 and thats the time
