In a circus an elderly performer thrills the crowd by catching a canon ball shot at him. The cannon ball has a mass of 28.0 kg and its horizontal component of velocity is 6.50 m/s when the 65.0 kg performer catches it. If the performer is on nearly frictionless roller skates, what is his recoil velocity?
