Two skaters are in the exact center of a circular frozen pond. Skater 1 pushes skater 2 off with a force of 100 N for 1.4 seconds. If skater 1 has a mass of 30 kg and skater 2 has a mass of 74 kg, a) what is the relative velocity (v1 - v2) after the push to the nearest hundredth of a m/s? b) After reaching the other shore, how fast, to the nearest tenth of a m/s, must skater 1 run around the lake to meet skater 2 at the opposite shore?
