A giant "egg" explodes as part of a fireworks display. The egg is at rest before the explosion, and after the explosion, it breaks into two pieces, with the masses indicated in the diagram, traveling in opposite directions.
What is the momentum PA,i of piece A before the explosion?(initial momentum)
During the explosion, is the force of piece A on piece B greater than, less than, or equal to the force of piece B on piece A?
law of conservation of momentum
The Attempt at a Solution
i think as it says in the question that the egg is at rest so wont the initial momentum be zero but a bit hesitant ...cant be that easy....
equal forces according to newtons law ?
