A small bomb, of mass 12 Kg, is moving toward the North with a velocity of 5.0 m/s. It explodes into three segments: a 6.0 Kg fragment moving west with a speed of 9.0 m/s; a 4.0 Kg fragment moving East with a speed of 10 m/s; and a third fragment with a mass of 1.0 Kg. What is the velocity of...
yeah i see that the masses will cancel out....but there is one problem....i've never had trig and don't know where to begin with a trig formula...is there a name?
Well, i figured the first one out. I found the velocity of mass B prime and used it to find the velocity of mass A prime. I'm working on number 4 right now. I'm thinkin that total energy at point A is equal to total energy at point B but there is no mass or angle and I don't know how to...
