A boy of mass 65.3 kg is about to disembark from a canoe of mass 36.1 kg. The canoe is initially at rest, with the bow just touching the dock (see figure). The center of the canoe is 3.0 m behind the bow. As the boy moves forward 6.0 m to the bow, the canoe moves away from the dock.
(a) How far is the boy from the dock when he reaches the bow?
