Solution: A boat is traveling where there is a current of 0.20 m/s east. To avoid some offshore rocks, the boat must clear a buoy that is NNE (22.5) and 2.8 km away. The boats speed through still water is 2.2 m/s .If the boat wants to pass the buoy 0.16 km on its right, at what angle relative north should the boat head?
