astronaut loses his grip during a spacewalk and finds himself floating away from the space station, carrying only a rope and a bag of tools. First he tries to throw a rope to his fellow astronaut, but the rope is too short. In a last ditch effort, the astronaut throws his bag of tools in the direction of his motion (away from the space station). The astronaut has a mass of 113 kg and the bag of tools has a mass of 10.0 kg. If the astronaut is moving away from the space station at 1.80 m/s initially, what is the minimum final speed of the bag of tools (with respect to the space station)
