Two fi gure skaters are moving east together during a

performance. Skater 1 (78 kg) is behind skater 2 (56 kg)

when skater 2 pushes on skater 1 with a force of

64 N [W]. Assume that no friction acts on either

skater. T / I

(a) Determine the acceleration of each skater.

(b) What will happen to the motion of each skater?

Explain your reasoning
