Problem: A fish swimming in a horizontal plane has velocity v Si 5 14.00i ^ 1 1.00j ^ 2 m/s at a point in the ocean where the position relative to a certain rock is r Si 5 110.0i ^ 2 4.00j ^ 2 m. After the fish swims with constant acceleration for 20.0 s its velocity is v S 5 120.0i ^ 2 5.00j ^ 2 m/s. (a) What are the components of the acceleration of the fish? (b) What is the direction of its acceleration with respect to unit vector i ^ ? (c) If the fish maintains constant acceleration where is it at t 5 25.0 s and in what direction is it moving?
