94. We first consider the 1200 kg part. The impulse has magnitude J and is (by our choice of coordinates) in the positive direction. Let m 1 be the mass of the part and v 1 be its velocity after the bolts are exploded. We assume both parts are at rest before the explosion. Then J = m 1 v 1 , so v J m 1 1 300 1200 025 == = Ns kg ms .. The impulse on the 1800 kg part has the same magnitude but is in the opposite direction,
