## Homework Statement

A 32 kg boy is standing on a 59 kg raft that is 8 m wide. He walks 6 m from a point 1.0 m from the left edge of the raft to a point 1.0 m from the right edge of the raft. If you ignore resistance of the water to the motion of the raft, how far does the raft move during this procedure

## Homework Equations

F=ma

p=mv

No idea

## The Attempt at a Solution

i draw a force diagram for it and looks like the one that will effect the movement of the boat is

F = friction force

but I have no idea what the friction constant is. and also will the mass affect the movement of the boat?

and I also don't have any velocity to use the equation of

m1v1 + m2v2 = m3v3

32(v1) + 0 = 91(v3)
