A 89.2 kg ice skater, moving at 16.1 m/s,
crashes into a stationary skater of equal mass.
After the collision, the two skaters move as a
unit at 8.05 m/s. Suppose the average force
a skater can experience without breaking a
bone is 4296 N.
If the impact time is 0.096 s, what is the
magnitude of the average force each skater
Answer in units of N
