Question

An object with total mass mtotal = 17.4 kg is sitting at rest when it explodes into three pieces. One piece with mass m1 = 4.9 kg moves up and to the left at an angle of θ1 = 21° above the –x axis with a speed of v1 = 25.9 m/s. A second piece with mass m2 = 5.1 kg moves down and to the right an angle of θ2 = 26° to the right of the -y axis at a speed of v2 = 21.4 m/s.

)What is the magnitude of the final momentum of the system (all three pieces)? kg-m/s

2)What is the mass of the third piece? kg

3)What is the x-component of the velocity of the third piece? m/s

4)What is the y-component of the velocity of the third piece? m/s

5)What is the magnitude of the velocity of the center of mass of the pieces after the collision? m/s

6)Calculate the increase in kinetic energy of the pieces during the explosion. J

Answer #1

1) Conserving momentum:

pf = pi = **0
kg-m/s**

2) m3 = M - m1 - m2 = 17.4kg - 4.9kg - 5.1kg = **7.4 kg**

Convert the angles to standard:

θ1 = 21° above the –x axis = 159º

θ2 = 26° to the right of the -y axis = 296º

3) Conserve momentum horizontally:

0 = 4.9kg*25.9m/s*cos159º + 5.1kg*21.4m/s*cos296º + 7.4kg*V*cosΘ3

V*cosΘ3 = **9.95
m/s** ◄ x-component

4) Conserve momentum vertically:

0 = 4.9kg*25.9m/s*sin159º + 5.1kg*21.4m/s*sin296º + 7.4kg*V*sinΘ3

V*sinΘ3 = **7.11
m/s** ◄ y-component

5) 0

6) KE = Σ ½mv²

KE = ½(4.9*25.9² + 5.1*21.4² + 7.4*(9.95² + 7.11²)) J =
**3365 J**

A tank, at rest at the origin of an x-y coordinate system,
explodes into three pieces. Just after the explosion, one piece,
mass of m, moves with the speed v in the negative x- direction, and
a second piece, with mass m/2, moves with a speed vd at
an angle of 30 degrees (down or -yaxis) with respect to the +x
axis. The third piece with mass m/2 moves with speed vu
at an angle (up or +y axis) of...

A vessel at rest explodes, breaking into three pieces.
Two pieces, having equal mass, fly off perpendicular to one another
with the same speed of 45m/s. One goes along the negative x-axis
and the other along the negative y-axis. The third piece has three
times the mass of each other piece.
What are the direction and magnitude of its velocity immediately
after the explosion?
1)What is the angle with respect to the x-axis?
2)What is the magnitude of its velocity?

1.0-kg grenade explodes into four pieces, all moving parallel to
the ground. The first piece of mass 0.20 kg moves east at 24 m/s.
The second piece of mass 0.30 kg flies north at 18 m/s. A third
piece of mass 0.25 kg is directed west at 30 m/s. What is the
velocity of the fourth piece?

An exploding cannonball is initially launched at a speed of 75.0
m/s at an angle of 30.0 ◦ above the horizontal. At its highest
point, the cannonball explodes into three pieces. The first piece,
with a mass of 2.00 kg, heads straight upward at a speed of 15.0
m/s immediately after the explosion. The second piece, with mass of
2.50 kg, initially moves in the direction 15.0 ◦ above the
horizontal immediately after the explosion. The third piece, with a...
