2 9.8 m / s Since no horizontal forces act, the horizontal component of the momentum is conserved. Since one fragment has a velocity of zero after the explosion, the momentum of the other equals the momentum of the shell before the explosion. At 1 PHY2048 Spring 2014 HW6 the highest point the velocity of the shell is...
