You are at the front of a floating canoe near a dock, you jump expecting to land on the dock, instead you land in the water. Explain this in terms of momentum conservation.

    Do you suppose that you had to push against the canoe, the canoe was free to move slightly, therefore, some of the momentum was transferred to the canoe instead of to your body and you fell short?
