### Question

A man can swim with velocity v relative to water. He has to cross a river of width d flowing with a velocity u (w > v). The distance through which he is carried downstream by the river is x. Which of the following statements is correct?

### Choices

Choice (4) Response

a.

If he crosses the river in minimum time x = du/v

b.

x cannot be less than du/v

c.

Force to be minimum he has to swim in a direction making an angle

of π/2- sin -1 (v/u) with the direction of the flow of water.

d.

x will be maximum if he swims in a direction making

an angle of π/2 + sin-1 - 1 (v/u) with direction of the flow of water.
