Could someone please read through my work to make sure I have worked this out correctly, please see the images below for my working out.
A space vehicle travelling at a velocity of 6000km/h separates by detonation of explosive bolts, into two sections of mass 1200 kg and 300 kg. The two parts continue moving in the same direction with the lighter section moving at 6200km/h. Making use of the principle of conservation of momentum, determine the velocity of the heavier section after separation
