Question

The figure below shows a man in a rowboat on a lake. The man's mass is 73 kg, and the rowboat's is 113 kg. The man and rowboat are initially at rest when the man throws a package of mass
m = 15 kg
horizontally to the right with a speed of
vi = 4.8 m/s.
What is the velocity of the rowboat after the package is thrown? Neglect any resistance force from the water. (Give the magnitude in m/s, and select the correct direction from the options given.)


magnitude
m/s
direction
