Sol. Velocity of man V ⃗m = 3 km/hr BD horizontal distance for resultant velocity R. X-component of resultant Rx = 5 + 3 cos θ t = 0.5 / 3sinθ which is same for horizontal component of velocity. H = BD = (5 + 3 cos θ) (0.5 / 3 sin θ) = (5+3 cos⁡θ)/(6 sin⁡θ ) For H to be min (dH/dθ) = 0 ⇒ d/(d θ) ((5+3 cos⁡θ)/(6 sin⁡θ )) = 0 ⇒ –18 (sin2 θ + cos2 θ) – 30 cos θ = 0 ⇒ –30 cos θ = 18 θ cos θ = –18 / 30 = –3/5 Sin θ = √(1-cos^2⁡〖θ 〗 ) = 4/5 ∴ H = (5+3 cos⁡θ)/(6 sin⁡θ ) = (5+3 (-3/5))/(6 x (4/5)) = 2/3 km
