							Dear student,

Relative velocity of second ship with respect to first one is40\sqrt{2}km/hrtowards north-east.

Hence from geometry, the distance of closes approach=\dfrac{1}{2}\dfrac{d}{cos45^{\circ}}=\dfrac{d}{\sqrt{2}}=5\sqrt{2}m

Time taken by the ship to cover this distance=\dfrac{d/\sqrt{2}}{v_{rel}}=\dfrac{5\sqrt{2}}{40\sqrt{2}}hr=0.125hr
