Question description

As a sailboat sails 59 m due north, a breeze exerts a constant force on the boat's sails. This force is directed at an angle west of due north. A force of the same magnitude directed due north would do the same amount of work on the sailboat over a distance of just 43 m. What is the angle between the direction of and due north?
