A man (weighing 915 N) stands on a long railroad flatcar (weighing 2720 N) as it rolls at 18.5 m/s in the positive direction of an x axis, with negligible friction. Then the man runs along the flatcar in the negative x direction at 55.00 m/s relative to the flatcar. What is the resulting increase in the speed of the flatcar?
