[SOLVED] motion of a bee 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A honeybee with a mass of 0.175 g lands on one end of a popsicle stick (Active Example 9-2). After sitting at rest for a moment, the bee runs toward the other end with a velocity 1.69 cm/s relative to the still water. What is the speed of the 4.95 g stick relative to the water? (Assume the bee's motion is in the negative direction.) Answer is in mm/s 2. Relevant equations m1v1+m2v2 3. The attempt at a solution I tried this 0+0=m1v1+m2v2 and plugged in 0=(0.175*-1690)+(4.95*v) and solved for v and got 59.7 mm/s but it was wrong. ** The bee is moving towards the right and the stick in floating in the water's direction towards the left.
