You toss a 0.90kg M-80 into the sky with a velocity 3.9m/s i^+ 9.8m/s j^ at t= 0s . At t= 0.60s the M-80 explodes into two unequal chunks of m1= 0.3kg and m2= 0.6kg . Ignore any air resistance.

What is the  x -component of the first chunk's velocity immediately after the explosion if the second chunk's velocity immediately after the explosion is −12m/s  i^+  33.8m/s  j^ ?

Homework Answers

Answer #1

apply momentum conservation

=  

0.9* ( 3.9 i +9.8 j ) = 0.3 *( ) + 0.6* ( -12 i +33.8 j )

0.3 *( ) = 0.9* ( 3.9 i +9.8 j ) - 0.6* ( -12 i +33.8 j )

= ( 0.9*3.9+0.6*12) i +( 0.9*9.8 -0.6*33.8)j

0.3 *( ) = 10.71 i   -11.46 j

= 3.57 i -3.82 j

x -component of the first chunk's velocity = 35.7 m/s answer  

in adition

y -component of the first chunk's velocity = -3.82 m/s

You toss a truck into the air at an angle of theta above the horizontal so that it will travel in an arc... off the side of a cliff - in the middle of winter. After you throw it, you know the following: the horizontal component of the truck's velocity is 16.4 m/s. the vertical component of the truck's velocity is 16.9 m/s. The truck is in free fall (no air resistance) while it is in the air. What is...

(hrw8c9p15) A shell is fired from a gun with a muzzle velocity of 39 m/s, at an angle of 60° with the horizontal. At the top of the trajectory, the shell explodes into two fragments of equal mass (see the figure). One fragment, whose speed immediately after the explosion is zero, falls vertically. How far from the gun does the other fragment land, assuming that the terrain is level and that the air drag is negligible?

A bullet shot from a small firearm has an initial velocity v0 of 52 m/s at an angle theta = 42 with respect to the horizontal. At the maximum trajectory (max height), we observe that, the bullet explodes into two small pieces both of which are of equal mass. One fragment  immediately after the explosion is therefore zero m/s and it falls vertically. How long (in seconds) does it take the shell to reach this point trajectory (max height)? What is...

A shell is shot with an initial velocity of 21 m/s, at an angle of 62 degrees above the horizontal. How long does it take for the shell to get to the top of its trajectory? At the top of the trajectory, the shell explodes into two fragments of equal mass, as shown in the figure below. One fragment, whose speed immediately after the explosion is zero, falls vertically.

Determine the maximum height of the projectile using energy. After the explosion, if the 1.0 kg mass is moving at 1/2 the speed it was right...
