Q. While thinking about your physics homework, you drop one of your mom's dinner plates on the floor breaking it into three pieces. The second piece has a mass of 2 times the first piece and flys off perpendicular to it. These first two pieces both have a speed of 2.6 m/sec. The third piece has 3 times the first piece. a) What is the magnitude of the velocity of the third plate? For this I applied consevation of momentum in both the x and y directions, and got the answer, which is correct. Take the direction of the first piece to be the x axis, the direction of the second piece to be the y axis, and angles to be measured positive counter-clockwise from the x axis. b) What is the direction of the third plate? I tried to find the direction using , tan theta = v3y / v3x, but still the computer says the answer is incorrect. Is the idea correct. Θ3= For this portion of the problem, assume the plate had a total mass of 1.4 kg. c) What was the total impulse delivered to the third piece? J3 = ? I know that impulse is the change in momentum Delta P, which is p2 - p1, but how do I apply it in this situation. Please help, Thanks!
