Physics 14 - Quiz 5 - Winter 2009 SHOW ALL YOUR WORK AND REASONING 1a. (1 pt) A space ship moving to the right in space at 100 m/s explodes into two equal mass pieces. After the explosion, one piece is seen to be moving back to the left at 100 m/s. Draw a picture just before and just after the explosion, accurately showing the velocities of the pieces. 1b. (1 pt) Which piece felt more force during the explosion? Explain. 1c. (2 pts) Which piece has the greatest momentum after the explosion? Explain. 2.
