Use principles of force and kinematics to answer these: a. A 40 kg skater pushes on the 60 kg skater (initially at rest). As they collide, the 40 kg skater pushes on the 60 kg skater, applying a force 100 Newtons for 1.2 seconds. Find the velocity at which each of them ends up...

**kinematics**

A man stands on a slope of 20 degrees.His weight is 65kg. Given that the coefficient of static friction is 1.5, Calculate the maximum angle that the slope can have to the horizontal before he begins to slide. Also how does the pressure on his feet change with the changing ...
