Jane and John, with masses of 50kg and 68kg , respectively, stand on a frictionless surface 13m apart. John pulls on a rope that connects him to Jane, giving Jane an acceleration of 0.86m/s2 toward him. What is the magnitude of the John's acceleration?
If the pulling force is applied constantly, where will Jane and John meet?

  1. The force is the same.

    find f from Janes acceleration, then find acceleration of John by the same force.
