At the center of a 50 m diameter circular ice rink, a 75 kg skater traveling north at 2.5 m/s collides with and holds onto a 60 kg skater who had been heading west at 3.5 m/s.

How long will it take them to get to the edge of the rink.
Where will the reach it. Give your answer as an angle north of west.
