A 74.5 kg ice skater moving to the right with a velocity of 2.62 m/s throws a 0.21 kg snowball to the right with a velocity of 23.8 m/s relative to the ground.

(a) What is the velocity of the ice skater after throwing the snowball? Disregard the friction between the skates and the ice.
1 m/s to the right
(b) A second skater initially at rest with a mass of 63.00 kg catches the snowball. What is the velocity of the second skater after catching the snowball in a perfectly inelastic collision?
