# A Skateboarder and an Observer#

Abbas is on a skateboard and has an initial velocity of (1.23 $$m/s$$) $$\hat{\imath}$$ relative to Emilia who is at rest with respect to the earth. Just as they are gliding past Emilia, Abbas throws a ball in the positive $$x$$-direction from a height of 1.83 m. According to Abbas, the ball has an initial velocity of (3.75 $$m/s$$) $$\hat{\imath}$$.
