A man and a woman, of weights Wm and Ww, stand at opposite ends of a stationary boat of weight Wb, ready to dive with velocities vm and vw, respectively, relative to the boat. Use computational software to determine the velocity of the boat after both swimmers have dived if (a) the woman dives first, (b) the man dives first. Use this program first to solve Prob. 14.4 as originally stated, then to solve that problem assuming that the velocities of the woman and the man relative to the boat are, respectively, (i) 14 ft/s and 18 ft/s, (ii) 18 ft/s and 14 ft/s. 14.
