Skater 1 has a mass of 45 kg and is at rest. Skater 2 has a mass of 50 kg and is moving slowly at a constant velocity of
3.2 m/s [E]. Skater 3 has a mass of 75 kg and is moving quickly at a constant velocity of 9.6 m/s [E]. Which skater
experiences the greatest net force? Explain.

I'm guessing skater 3, since they have the most mass and speed. Try plugging them into its formula
