A 50-kg ice skater moves across the ice at a constant speed of 2.0 m/s. She is caught by her79-kg partner, and then the pair continues to glide together. He is at rest when he catches her, and immediately afterward they both coast.
What is their velocity just after the catch? Assume she moves in the positive x-direction before her partner catches her. (solved already)
A skater follows the girl at a constant speed of 1.0 m/s. What is the magnitude of the girl's change in momentum in the reference frame of the skater?
The Attempt at a Solution
Part a) solved. answer was 0.78 m/s
Part B) 50kg(2.0-1.0 m/s)= 50__
i dont not know if this is the correct answer an i am also unsure the units it should be in
