He has takes a 1kg "safety week" and shoves it away in exactly the direction of his motion at a speed of 6m/s. What speed does the astronaut move back toward the space shuttle?

    conservation of momentum
    initial momentum=sum final momentums
    100(-0.02)=1(6)+99(V) solve for V.

    what is the final answer? :(
