A 59.0-kg skater is traveling due east at a speed of 1.80 m/s. A 61.0-kg skater is moving due south at a speed of 6.20 m/s. They collide and hold on to each other after the collision, managing to move off at an angle south of east, with a speed of vf. Find (a) the angle and (b) the speed vf, assuming that friction can be ignored.
