A tennis player places a 54 kg ball machine on a frictionless surface. The machine fires a 0.057 kg tennis ball horizontally with a velocity of 38 m/s toward the north. What is the final velocity of the machine?


m/s to the south

  • physics -

    momentum is conserved.
    Massmachine*veloctitymachine=-massball*velocityball

    velocitymachine=-.057/54 * 38 North

    and of course, -North is South
