1. A boy stands on one end of a boat, and then walks to the other end. Does the boat

move? Why or why not?

Yes the Boat moves backward, since the boy and boat are standing Stationary initially the initial momentum of boat and boy is zero. When the boy moves forward to the other end of boat, the Velocity of boat must be in backward for final momentum of boy and boat to be zero.

Problem 8.106 A 45.0-kg woman stands up in a 60.0-kg canoe 5.00 m long. She walks from a point 1.00 m from one end to a point 1.00 m from the other end (the figure (Figure 1) ). Part A If you ignore resistance to motion of the canoe in the water, how far does the canoe move during this process? dcanoe = m to the left

A person weighing 60 kg is standing at one end of a flatboat so that he is 10 m from the shore ( see fig. below). He walks towards the other end of the boat until he arrives at the middle of the boat. He then finds out he is 1.2 m farther from the shore than before. The flatboat weighs 180 kg and one can assume there is no friction between it and the water. a) How far away...

Jack and Jill are in a boat 4 m long. The boat has mass 48 kg and its weight is uniformly distributed along its length. Jill (mass 30 kg) sits at one end and Jack (mass 45 kg) sits at the other end. The boat is in still water, not moving as children stay still. If Jack and Jill exchange their positions, by how much does the boat move? Ignore any resistance of the lake's water.
