A 50 kg skater at rest on a frictionless rink throws a 2 kg ball, giving the ball a velocity of 10 m/s. Which statement describes the skaters subsequent motion? Explain please.
a. 0.4 m/s in the same direction as the ball.
b. 0.4 m/s in the opposite direction of the ball.
c. 2 m/s in the same direction as the ball.
d. 4 m/s in the same direction as the ball.
e. 4 m/s in the opposite direction of the ball
