A space vehicle travelling at a velocity of 1200ms -1 separates by a controlled explosion into two sections of mass 865kg and 2010 kg. The two parts carry on in the same direction with the heavier rear section moving 120 ms -1 slower than the lighter front section. Determine the final velocity of each section.
The Attempt at a Solution
i got as far as this on the equation however im stuck
we have been told that V=1284m/s
and heavier body velocity=1164m/s
