Newton’s Law of Motion
September 28th, 2022
Two skaters are in the exact center of a circular frozen pond. Skater 1 pushes skater 2 off with a force of 100 N for 1.69 seconds. If skater 1 has a mass of 34 kg and skater 2 has a mass of 72 kg, what is the relative velocity (v1 – v2) after the push to the nearest hundredth of a m/s?
After reaching the other shore, how fast, to the nearest tenth of a m/s, must skater 1 run around the lake to meet skater 2 at the opposite shore?
