PHYSICS 101Week 8Quiz 6 FormAName:SEC:DSCORE:/201 of 10Instructions:Do your own work.Answer the questions below in the space provided.To receive credit you must:oExecute the problem solving technique used indiscussion.oHave correct units on all numerical answers.Please place a box around your answers.1. A block of mass 30kgslides along a frictionless floor with velocity࠵?&= 10 m/s(Figure A).It suddenly explodes and breaks into two pieces (Figure B):piece 1,࠵?.= 10 kg,࠵?.= 5 m/spiece 2,࠵?0= 20 kgThe pieces travel along the floor in a straight line along the x-axis.What is the velocity of piece 2?Plan (don’t forget your table):Q1Q2Q3Q45555
1) Use the definition of momentum to write the momentum in the initial state.2) Use the definition of momentum to write the momentum of each piece inthe final state3) Set the initial momentum equal to the final momentum to find the velocityof piece 2.
