Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 1 m dog=9.5 kg(vdog i = 0 m/s(v ) =0.5 m/s canoe i(vcanoe f)=-0.15 m/sm canoe=Use the conservation of the momentum to calculate the mass of the canoe.The initial momentum of the dog and the canoe system is equal to the finalmomentum of the dog and the canoe system and it is expressed as follows: mdog(vdog i =m canoev canoe i= m dog(vdog f =m canoe(vcanoe f 9.5(0)=m canoe0)= 9.5(0.5)=m canoe(-0.15) 0=4.5+m canoe-0.15) mcanoe =30 kgTherefore, the mass of the canoe is 30 kg.
