You may have some corrections to do. When she starts her journey, her top speed is in another direction, and has to combine with the river current to give a final velocity with an angle of 36.9 degrees.

SO. You will end up with a new triangle with an angle of 36.9 degrees. The adjacent will be cos(theta)*12 + 2, and the opposite will just be sin(theta)*12. Theta will be the angle that the woman has to steer the boat at.

The hypotenuse of this new triangle will be a new number, let's call it H. By using trig, we can solve for the two variables, theta and H.

H will be your overall velocity, and with it and the total distance you've already calculated (5km), you can use your kinematics equations to find the time needed for travel.

If anything is unclear, just send me a message!

I'm saying that the boat's speed (12km/h) is going to be in a direction that isn't 36.9 degrees. When you add the boat's x and y components and the river's x component, then you'll get an angle of 36.9 degrees.

haha... I am so sorry. I never even took pre calc, i went to culinary school. My approximate knowledge of everything is of no use to you. My sincerest apologies

if you have any problems with cooking, the way the universe works, animals, or basic human biology related, i'm your guy

Do humans have free will?

that depends on your system of beliefs
User avatar #3985 to #3984 - nimba (01/28/2015) [-]
I don't see how my beliefs would change nature
User avatar #3986 to #3985 - tarfyki (01/28/2015) [-]
well, according to Catholicism, we do (although if you use logic, you can prove that we don't)

if you believe in destiny/ fate/ whatever, we don't

if you believe in chaos theory, we do
User avatar #3987 to #3986 - tarfyki (01/28/2015) [-]
Actually, it depends on if you believe we are at the very front edge of time (which i highly doubt) so i suppose it really is possible either way

i know we would want time travel either way, but should we if we cant trust anyone in power or regular people? because people do a lot of bad things morally under the table rather it's illegal or not

Seeing as there is an infinitesimally small chance of time being linear, i don't thing it will be too big of a problem. With multiple timelines and such

I thought reverse time travel was impossible?
User avatar #3982 to #3979 - tarfyki (01/27/2015) [-]
I don't think it would be true time travel if it was multiple universes. At that point i guess it would be inter-universal time travel
#3981 to #3979 - anonexplains (01/27/2015) [-]
It may be possible but only if a multiverse exists. Going "back in time" would put you in another universe.

Say reverse time travel was possible and I went back and killed my father before I was born. I'd still exist because I only killed someone from another universe who was exactly like my father, but not my actual father.

why is this place always so dead
#3965 - cloudpawtwo ONLINE (01/25/2015) [-]
What if people in comas believed they were dead, so their own subconscious developed a 'heaven' for them, which would be similar to a never ending until they died or realized they weren't dead lucid dream?

Would it be possible for a star to be dense enough to also be a black hole?

excuse my science knowledge

sciencexplain
User avatar #3966 to #3964 - tarfyki (01/25/2015) [-]
when a star runs out of fuel, if it's dense enough and has enough energy it will collapse in on itself and become a black hole. Same thing can happen with a galaxy. But no, it is not possible for a star to be a black hole, and a star at the same time (if that's what you're asking)
User avatar #3963 - tarfyki (01/25/2015) [-]
What if the way the world works in our dreams is how the universe actually is, and reality is just or brains making sense of it due to the physical limitations of our bodies?
User avatar #3969 to #3963 - loomiss ONLINE (01/26/2015) [-]
Science says no
User avatar #3971 to #3969 - tarfyki (01/26/2015) [-]
thank you for that thorough and well thought out explanation. And the sources you provided are even more convincing
User avatar #3972 to #3971 - loomiss ONLINE (01/26/2015) [-]
I mean think through it logically.
MAybe im misunderstanding what you are saying but
Science can prove laws of physics and stuff in this universe
But in dreams I can breathe fire and fly. randomly show up in different places etc..

I'm downloading something on Deluge, I have enough space for it, but at a certain point in the download it just says "error".
The thing I'm downloading is The Mega Folder, basically a large, 75Gb folder of nearly anything you could want to know.

Your sense of freedom is an illusion.
Your sense of self is an illusion.
Your sense of meaning is a lie.

Tell me: why do you care about life? I can't fathom why one would love smoke and mirrors.
#3936 to #3934 - anonexplains (01/22/2015) [-]
if you would truely believe what you try to make us believe with these statements (i.e. utter nihilism), you would already have offed yourself.

That's the best proof of your bullshit
#3938 to #3936 - anonexplains (01/22/2015) [-]

Morality does not exist because it is an idea based on arbitrary categorizations of processes. Humans do not do things based on logic, humans do things based on the the arrangement of matter in the brain.

In Canada, is the difference between research jobs and industry jobs's salary really that large? Because I see cool shit on the internet that scientists and engineers are doing, and it kinda makes me want to go do a Master's degree after I'm done my Bachelor's. I'm taking electrical engineering, if you're wondering.
User avatar #3970 to #3932 - loomiss ONLINE (01/26/2015) [-]
Where did you get this notion
#3977 to #3970 - zekonos (01/27/2015) [-]
My parents, mostly. Both of them have master's degrees from Poland, and they say that usually research jobs don't pay well. I think they mean at a university, but still.
User avatar #3978 to #3977 - loomiss ONLINE (01/27/2015) [-]
Where could I find this info?
I wanna see what electrical engineering industry pays compared to research
#3998 to #3978 - zekonos (01/28/2015) [-]
www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes172071.htm

That gives a pretty good outline of EE jobs in the states.

www.bls.gov/ooh/architecture-and-engineering/electrical-and-electronics-engineers.htm

That one's a little more introductory.

www.servicecanada.gc.ca/eng/qc/job_futures/statistics/2133.shtml

The canadian survey doesn't really have any information on research related jobs, but I think most industries have R&D components, so there's that I guess.

I have a question, everything outside our laws of physics is possible correct?
User avatar #3946 to #3929 - djequalizee (01/24/2015) [-]
What do you mean?
User avatar #3956 to #3946 - iceguy (01/24/2015) [-]
say, outside of our universe, where the laws of physics don't apply, is technically anything possible for no reason at all?
User avatar #3957 to #3956 - djequalizee (01/24/2015) [-]
Essentially so, yeah. Though it depends. We can't really make any assumptions about it yet because it most likely goes against everything we've come to learn. There isn't even time as far as we know. So it may be possible that absolutely nothing can happen outside of our universe

However it is true that completely different and counter-intuitive things could happen in other universes if the multiverse theory is a thing
#3930 to #3929 - anonexplains (01/22/2015) [-]
If I can nail your mom, anything is possible.
