An ice skater whose mass is 50 kg moves with a constant momentum of (400, 0, 300) kg·m/s. During this period of constant momentum, she passes the location (0, 0, 3) m. What was her location at a time 3 s earlier?
1. (−8, 0, −5) m
2. (−24, 0, −15) m
3. (−10, 3, −7) m
4. (8, 0, 5) m
5. (10, 3, 7) m
6. (−20, 0, −14) m
7. (24, 0, 15) m
