# Ice tennis

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.
