A movie stunt man (mass 82.3 kg) stands on a window ledge 5.69 m above the floor. Grabbing a rope attached to a chandelier, he swings down to grapple with the movieís villain (mass 72.3 kg), who is standing directly under the chandelier. (Assume that the stunt manís center of mass moves downward 5.69 m. He releases the rope just as he reaches the villain) If the coefficient of kinetic friction of their bodies with the floor is uk = 0.66, how far do they slide?

Give your answer in meters to the second decimal place.
