A 28 kg canoe has a 24 kg passenger. The passenger is 2.0 m from the left end of the canoe and the center of mass of the canoe by itself is 2.9 m from the left end.

a. Calculate the position of the center of mass of the canoe/passenger system. b. if we neglect any horizontal forces exerted by the water on the canoe and we assume there is no wind that day, what is the next horizontal force on the canoe/passenger system?

c. Under the conidtions of (b), what is the acceleration of the center of mass of the canoe/passenger system?

d. Under the conditions of (b), the passenger moves to a point 1.0 to the right of the center of mass of the canoe. By how much does the position of the center of mass of the canoe/passenger system change during this process with respect to the the river bank?
