Energy originally stored in the spring is converted to kinetic energy of the rocket parts. 89. We assume no external forces act on the system composed of the two parts of the last stage. Hence, the total momentum of the system is conserved. Let m c be the mass of the rocket case and m p the mass of the payload. At first they are traveling together with velocity v . After the clamp is released m c has velocity v c and m p has velocity v p . Conservation of momentum yields ( m c + m p ) v = m c v
