a)what's the magnitude of the force that peter exerts on john?
b)what's the magnitude of pete's acceleration toward john?

I am not sure what formula to use, pleaase help!

    The center of mass will remain in the same place in this frictionless situation

    a) Use F = ma
    Solve for the F

    b) Also use F = ma on Pete, with the same F, and solve for a(of Pete).
    The F will be the same on both, but in opposite directions.
