To get off a frozen frictionless lake, a 70.0kg person takes off a 0.150-kg shoe and throws it horizontally directly away from the shore with a speed of 2.00m/s. If the person is 5.0 m from the shore, how long does it take for him to reach it?

    Lake Erie contains about 4.8 x 10^17 grams of fresh water. Assume that the lake has frozen solid and that the ice starts off at -3 C. How much energy would the lake need to absorb from the Sun to cause it to evaporate completely?

    Two chunks of ice are sliding on a frictionless frozen pond. Chunk A, with mass mA=5.0kg, moves with initial velocity vA1=2.0m/s parallel to the x-axis. It collides with chunk B, which has a mass mB=3.0kg and is initially at rest.
