1. ### Conservation of momentum in an oblique launch and projectile explosion

I used the center of horizontal momentum frame. I just used the y-moment to find the angle of the velocity component, so I can write the velocity in the horizontal direction. I'll edit the equations to make it clearer
2. ### Conservation of momentum in an oblique launch and projectile explosion

This problem I already solved using another resource (just get the coordinate of the center of mass reach and from it, get to the larger mass. R = (3v02) / (4g)). But I'm having some trouble calculating using moment conservation. Here what I've done so far: $$3\vec v_0 = \vec v_1 +2\vec v_2$$...
3. ### Speed of a hanging rope sliding on a nail (using energy conservation)

"In (1) and (3), what is the initial height of the mass center of each side?" I was trying to calculate from the end of the string, but really from the center of mass it seems a lot simpler. "In (2), you have a factor x (l-x) in the GPE term, but it is (l-x)^2 in (4). Do you see the asymmetry...
4. ### Speed of a hanging rope sliding on a nail (using energy conservation)

You're right! It's as simple as that. But, the logic used to express the initial and final energies do you think is right?
5. ### Speed of a hanging rope sliding on a nail (using energy conservation)

I solved this problem easily using Newton's second law, but I had problems trying to use mechanical energy conservation to solve it. How I solved using Newton's second law: ##\text{(part of the rope that is on the left)}\, m_1=x\rho g,\, \text{(part of the rope that is on the right)}\...
6. ### I Using recurrence formula to solve Legendre polynomial integral

I am trying to prove the following expression below: $$\int _{0}^{1}p_{l}(x)dx=\frac{p_{l-1}(0)}{l+1} \quad \text{for }l \geq 1$$ The first thing I did was use the following relation: $$lp_l(x)+p'_{l-1}-xp_l(x)=0$$ Substituting in integral I get: \frac{1}{l}\left[ \int_0^1 xp'_l(x)dx...
7. ### Using the Divergence Theorem on the surface of a sphere

Sorry, I forgot to organize and correct something here. 1 / | r-r '| is a scalar, in my papers I was disregarding the module, forget that part of the divergence theorem.
8. ### Using the Divergence Theorem on the surface of a sphere

it's a scalar (lol I saw the error here, i forgot to fix it here)
