Question

Give all five aspects of every problem: visual representation,
principles/laws/assumptions of physics, symbolic representation -
equations with variables, numerical solution, and check - refer to
the principles you invoked and comment on the nature of the
numerical solution.

On a low-friction track, two carts coupled together are initially
moving to the right at 3.0 m/s. The rear cart has an inertia of 2.5
kg and he lead cart’s inertia is 4.0 kg. An explosive charge
attached to the coupling is ignited remotely, releasing 30 J of
energy. One-third of that energy is dissipated to incoherent forms.
Determine the velocities of the carts just after the explosive
separation.
