1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In a pairs skating competition, the male skater is initially carrying his partner. Together they have a mass of 130.0 kg and they are are moving forward with a velocity of 2.5 m/s. If the male skater throws his partner forward at 1.5m/s, find the velocity of the male skater after he throws his 45.0kg partner. 2. Relevant equations Pa + Pb = P'a + P'b v= p/m 3. The attempt at a solution So assuming the equation to find velocity which is v=p/m all i have right now is the mass of the male skater which is 85kg. Now im not to sure what to do with the original combined momentum ( both skaters together) which was p= (130kg)(2.50m/s)= 325kg.m/s...... Now would what do i do with that do find the answer?
