A river flows at 3 m/s and is 300 m wide. A man swims across the river with a velocity of 2 m/s directed always perpendicular to the flow of current.
Calculate: (A) The total time taken ( in minutes) by man to cross the river? (B) How far down the stream ( from the starting point ) does he reach the opposite bank of the river ( in metre ) ?
