##### Reference no: EM13342430

A father racing his son has three-fifths the kinetic energy of the son, who has half the mass of the father. The father speeds up by 1.0 m/s and then has the same kinetic energy as the son.

(a) What is the original speed of the father?

m/s

(b) What is the original speed of the son?

m/s
