Posted by Elizabeth on Monday, October 22, 2012 at 8:22pm.

A girl is skipping stones across a lake. One of the stones accidentally ricochets off a toy boat that is initially at rest in the water (see the drawing below). The 0.094-kg stone strikes the boat at a velocity of 14 m/s, 15° below due east, and ricochets off at a velocity of 10 m/s, 12° above due east. After being struck by the stone, the boat's velocity is 2.2 m/s, due east. What is the mass of the boat? Assume the water offers no resistance to the boat's motion.

Answer will be in kg.
