Chapter 9259P9.21(a), (b) Let vgand vpbe the velocity of the girl and the plankrelative to the ice surface. Then we may say that vvgp−isthe velocity of the girl relative to the plank, so that−=150.(1) But also we must have mvggpp+=0, since totalmomentum of the girl-plank system is zero relative to theice surface. Therefore45 01500., or =−333.Putting this into the equation (1) above gives−−=..or vp0346. msThen vg−=3 33 0 346115.afmsFIG.
