As i was doing a chapter review, I came across this question. I have tried to solve it, to now avail, I do not know where to begin. No solution was given in the textbook, and I would like to know how to solve it. Thanks for taking your time to help me.
Question:
A railroad flatcar of weight W can roll without friction along a straight horizontal track.. A man of weight w is standing on the car, which is moving to the right with a speed v. What is the change in the velocity of the car if the man runs to the left so that his speed relative to the car is V_{rel} just before he jumps off the left end?
