A sunbather lying on a floating raft that experiences no friction with the water gets up and walks to the western end of the raft. While she is walking, how does the center of gravity of the system composed of her and the raft move? Why? If the mass of the raft is 10 times that of the sunbather's mass, in which direction and about how fast does the raft move in terms of the sunbather's speed?
