Homework Help: physical science

Posted by maria on Friday, September 21, 2012 at 5:46pm.

A 70-kg man and a 50-kg woman are in a 60-kg boat when its motor fails. The man dives into the water with a horizontal speed of 3m/s in order to swim ashore. If he changes his mind, can he swim back to the boat if his swimming speed is 1m/s? If not, can the woman change the boat's motion enough by diving off it at 3 m/s in the opposite direction? Could she then return to the boat herself if her swimming speed is also 1 m/s?
