Problem 52PE

Integrated Concepts

A 90.0-kg ice hockey player hits a 0.150-kg puck, giving the puck a velocity of 45.0 m/s. If both are initially at rest and if the ice is frictionless, how far does the player recoil in the time it takes the puck to reach the goal 15.0 m away?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 5

The recoil distance of the ice hockey player can be found by applying the law of  conservation of linear momentum which states the initial and final momentum of the objects which are in motion are equal.

Step 2 of 5

Step 3 of 5
