## Homework Statement

So I know that a cannon weighs 2220 kg and a cannon ball weighs 19.5 kg and that when you fire the cannon at 102 m/s the speed of the cannon is .895m/s in the opposite direction. part B of the problem asks how much faster would the ball travel is the cannon was mounted rigidly disregarding friction.

## Homework Equations

mv1 = mv2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I did 2220(x)= (19.5)(102) to find the speed of the cannon in part A so for part B i did

2220(0) = (19.5)(x) but I am not sure if 19.5 m/s is correct.
