Ice tennis

Classical Mechanics Level 2

I am standing on an ice rink, holding a tennis ball.

I threw the tennis horizontally such that the ball moves with speed \(v\) relative to me. With what speed did I move (relative to the ground) after throwing the ball?

Details and assumptions

  • My mass is \(M\), the ball's mass is \(m\)

  • There is no friction between me and the ground.
