Question #22830
——since the question states that East is pos- itive, and the fisherman is moving west, then when the fisherman jumps into the rowboat, they will both be moving west. Therefore the velocity should be NEGATIVE.—— Note: Take East as the positive direction. A(n) 80 kg fisherman jumps from a dock into a 129 kg rowboat at rest on theWest side of the dock. If the velocity of the fisherman is 4.7 m/s to the West as he leaves the dock, what is the final velocity of the fisherman and the boat? Answer in units of m/s
