A girl of mass (Mg) is standing on a plank of mass (Mp). Both are originally at rest on a frozen lake that constitutes a frictionless, flat surface. The girl begins to walk along the plank at a constant velocity (vgp) to the right relative to the plank. (The subscript gp denotes the girl relative to plank. Use any variable or symbol stated above as necessary.)
