Homer the human powder keg, initially at rest, suddenly explodes into 3 pieces each with = mass. One piece moves east at 30 m/s and a second piece moves at 30 m/s south east(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) calculate the speed of the 3rd piece and direction

Problem i'm having is I can't find the angles because they are not given. With at least one given angle i could solve the problem. Is there a way to find an angle?
