1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data You are 60kg and you are holding a 10kg weight as you stand at rest on a frictionless surface. you can throw the weight 5m on ground where there is friction to keep you from moving backwards. How far will the 10kg weight be from you after you throw it on the frictionless surface? 2. Relevant equations M1V1 + M2V2 = 0 3. The attempt at a solution Total momentum of the system (you + weight) after the throw must be the same as it was before so it will be 0. M1 = 60kg M2= 10kg V1 = ? V2 = ? Please help! Thanks!
