Jane and John, with masses of 50 kg and 60 kg, respectively, stand on a frictionless surfact 10 m apart. John pulls on a rope that connects him to Jane, giving Jane an acceleration of 0.92 m/s^2 toward him. (a) What is John's acceleration? (b) If the pulling force is applied constantly, where will Jane and John meet?

    A.)
    F=ma
    F= (50kg)(.92m/s^2)
    F= 46N

    a= 46N/60kg
    a= 0.77m/s^2 toward Jane
