A figure skater pushes off from rest and glides along a circular path, the radius of which is 3 times her height. What must be her minimum initial velocity in order to come full circle without having to push off a second time?

Use principles of force and kinematics to answer these: a. A 40 kg skater pushes on the 60 kg skater (initially at rest). As they collide, the 40 kg skater pushes on the 60 kg skater, applying a force 100 Newtons for 1.2 seconds.
