2.) A 75 kg women and a 65 kg man face each other on a friction-less ice pond. The women holds a 5.0 kg medicine ball. The women throws the ball to the man with a horizontal velocity of 2.5 m/s relative to the ice. What is her recoil velocity? What is the man's velocity after catching the ball? The man the throws the ball horizontally to the women at 3.0 m/s relative to himself at the instant before release. What is his final velocity? What is the women's final velocity after catching it?
