Size:  10.7 KBA male and female skater of equal mass are moving as shown in the figure above, with the female skater having a velocity of Ua at θ below the horizontal, and the male skater moving with half this speed at ϕ above the horizontal. When they collide, they cling to each other, and both of them move horizontally with velocity V.

    For what range of angles θ is this possible?
