At the centre of a circular ice rink, a 87.0 kg ice skater moving 2.10 m/s north hits and grabs onto a 51.0 kg ice skater who had been traveling west at 5.35 m/s. If the skaters hold onto each other and the rink has a 26.0 m diameter, what is the amount of time for the skaters to reach the edge of the rink?
