The man M has weight { W }_{ M } and jumps onto the boat B which has weight { W }_{ B } . If he has a horizontal component of velocity v relative to the boat, just before he enters the boat, and the boat is traveling at speed { v }_{ B } away from the pier when he makes the jump, determine the resulting velocity of the man and boat. Given: { W }_{ M } = 150 lb , { v }_{ B } = 2 ft/s , { W }_{ B } = 200 lb , g = { 32.2ft/s }^{ 2 } , v = 3 ft/s
