A small bomb, of mass 12 Kg, is moving toward the North with a velocity of 5.0 m/s. It explodes into three segments: a 6.0 Kg fragment moving west with a speed of 9.0 m/s; a 4.0 Kg fragment moving East with a speed of 10 m/s; and a third fragment with a mass of 1.0 Kg. What is the velocity of the third fragment? (neglect friction)

now with this one...is this a change in momentum problem?
