Biomechanics
Two ice skaters start out motionless in the center of an ice rink. They then push each other apart. The first skater (mass = 80 kg) moves to the right with a velocity of 2.5 m/s. The second skater (mass = 58 kg) moves to the left at some unknown speed. If we assume that the ...

oh thats easy. you have to use ì. 20m/s = Velocity...a= Äv(velocity) over Ät(time) so it would be 20m/s divided by 1m/s and you get 20m/s squared and so on...hope it helps!
