Question

Two astronauts on opposite ends of a spaceship are comparing
lunches. One has an apple, the other has an orange. They decide to
trade. Astronaut 1 tosses the 0.120 kg apple toward astronaut 2
with a speed of *v*i,1 = 1.12 m/s . The 0.170 kg orange is
tossed from astronaut 2 to astronaut 1 with a speed of 1.21 m/s .
Unfortunately, the fruits collide, sending the orange off with a
speed of 0.932 m/s in the negative *y* direction.

Part A

What are the final speed and direction of the apple in this case?

Part B

∘ counterclockwise from the positive *x* axis

Answer #1

We know that the..

Find the speed and the counterclockwise from the positive x axis..
