Homework Help: Physical science question 2

Posted by Christy on Saturday, March 1, 2008 at 6:34pm.

I am definitely lost on this problem. Can someone help me out?

A(n) 51.3 kg astronaut becomes separated
from the shuttle, while on a spacewalk. She
finds herself 50.3 m away from the shuttle
and moving with zero speed relative to the
shuttle. She has a(n) 0.537 kg camera in her
hand and decides to get back to the shuttle
by throwing the camera at a speed of 12 m/s
in the direction away from the shuttle.
How long will it take for her to reach the
shuttle? Answer in units of min.
