Two ice skaters stand together as illustrated in Figure (a) below. They "push off" and travel directly away from each other, the boy with a velocity of v = 0.33 m/s to the left. If the boy weighs 728 N and the girl weighs 465 N, what is the girl's velocity after they push off? (Consider the ice to be frictionless. Enter the magnitude only.)
