A 66.5 kg ice skater moving to the right with
a velocity of 2.72 m/s throws a 0.104 kg snow-
ball to the right with a velocity of 40.3 m/s
relative to the ground.
What is the velocity of the ice skater after
throwing the snowball? Disregard the friction
between the skates and the ice.
Answer in units of m/s
