Description:

This applet simulates a boat crossing a river. The user can set the speed at which the river flows, and the magnitude and direction of the boat's velocity. The applet then displays the path taken by the boat. It also calculates the velocity of the boat with respect to the river and the shore, as well as the time it takes for the boat to cross the river.
