99. No external forces with horizontal components act on the cart-man system and the vertical forces sum to zero, so the total momentum of the system is conserved. Let m c be the mass of the cart, v be its initial velocity, and v c be its final velocity (after the man jumps off). Let m m be the mass of the man. His initial velocity is the same as that of the cart and his final velocity is zero. Conservation of momentum yields (
