Problem 57E

In Example 8.14 (Section 8.5), Ramon pulls on the rope to give himself a speed of 0.70 m/s. What is James’s speed?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 57E Step 1: Data given Mass of James m = 90.0 kg j Mass of Ramon m = 60.r kg Distance between them d = 20.0 m Velocity of Ramon v = 0.r0 m/s We need to find velocity of Ramon Let us consider law of conservation of momentum Hence we have m r r m v j j Here v jvelocity of James Substitute the values to find v j vj= (m v r r j vj= (60.0 kg × 0.70 m/s)/90.0 kg v = (42 m/s kg )/90.0 kg j vj= 0.466 m/s This can approximated to 0.47 m/s Thus we have velocity of James as 0.47 m/s
