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?
