A passenger on a ship gazes towards the mountainous shore and notices that, from where he stands, the summit of one mountain lies directly behind the summit of another; both summits are west of north from him. 4 hours later, he looks for the two mountains again, and finds that they no longer line up; one is south of west from him and the other is north of west. Given that the ship he is on was travelling northeast at a speed of 34 km/h, find the distance between the two mountains.
