Question: Three ice skaters meet at the center


Three ice skaters meet at the center of a rink and each stands at rest facing the center, within arm’s reach of the other two. On a signal, each skater pushes himself away from the other two across the frictionless ice. After the push, skater A with mass mA = 80.0 kg moves in the negative y - direction at 3.50 m/s and skater B with mass mB = 75.0 kg moves in the negative x - direction at 4.00 m/s. Find the x - and y - components of the 90.0 - kg skater C’s velocity after the push.
