A man weighs 150lb and jumps onto a boat which is originally at rest. If he has a horizontal component of velocity of 3 ft/s just before he enters the boat, determine the weight of the boat if it has a velocity of 2 ft/s once the man enters it.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:06 pm ad1c9bdddf
Let us assume wt. of boat = wb lb
weight of man wm = 150 lb
velocity of man ...
The solution is solved step-by-step equationally.
