Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Nur on Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 9:03pm.

2 people, each with a mass of 70 kg, are wearing inline skates and are holding opposite ends of a 15 m rope. One person pulls forward on the rope by moving hand over hand and gradually reeling in more of the rope. In doing so, he exerts a force of 35 N [backwards] on the rope. This causes him to accelerate toward the other person. Assuming that the friction acting on the skaters is negligible, how long will it take for them to meet?
