94. We first consider the 1200 kg part. The impulse has magnitude Jand is (by our choice of coordinates) in the positive direction. Let m1be the mass of the part and v1be its velocity after the bolts are exploded. We assume both parts are at rest before the explosion. Then J = m1v1, so vJm113001200025==⋅=Nskgms..The impulse on the 1800 kg part has the same magnitude but is in the opposite direction,
