B. less than that of the alpha particle. C. greater than that of the alpha particle. March 2, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 2 3 Recoil Recoil Recoil Recoil s When a bullet is fired from a gun, the gun recoils • It moves in the opposite direction from the bullet s Suppose a cannonball (mass 13.7 kg) is fired at a target that is 2.30 km (maximum range) away from the cannon (mass 249.0 kg) s The target and cannon are at the same elevation and the cannon is resting on a horizontal surface s PROBLEM • What the velocity with which the cannon will recoil? s THINK • The cannon can only recoil in the horizontal direction • The x-component of the center of mass momentum of the cannon/cannonball system remains unchanged • The x-component of the center of mass momentum is zero March 2, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 3 4 Recoil Recoil Recoil Recoil s SKETCH March 2, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 4 5 Recoil Recoil Recoil Recoil s RESEARCH • Use index 1 for the cannon and 2 for the cannonball • The x-component of the velocity is • The range of the cannonball is given by • The maximum range corresponds to θ = 45 ° March 2, 2011 Physics for Scientists&Engineers 1 5 2 1 2 1 1 2 2 1 2 1 0 m P p p m v m v v v m...
