a man of 50kg is standing on one end on a boat of length 25m and mass 200 kg .if he starts running and when he reaches the other end ,he has a velocity 2m/s with respect to the boat .the final velocity of the boat is?

  • physics - ,

    Total momentum (relative to land) must remain zero. Let V be the final boat velocity (positive backwards). The man's final velocity with respect to land will be (V -2)m/s.

    200*V + 25*(V-2) = 0
    175 V = 50
    V = 0.286 m/s
