A 30 kg girl and a 25 kg boy face each other on friction-free roller blades. The girl pushes the boy, who moves away at a speed of 1.0 m/s. The girl speed is _______ m/s?

  • Physical Science -

    The girl's momentum is equal and of opposite sign, so the total momentum remains zero.
    30*Vgirl = 25*1.0

    Solve for Vgirl

  • Physical Science -

    0.83 m/s
