A body, initially at rest, explodes into two pieces of mass 2M and 3M respectively, having a total kinetic energy E.
What is the kinetic energy of the piece of mass 2M after the explosion?
The Attempt at a Solution
The velocity of the 2 pieces of objects is different,how do i calculate?
Can anyone guide me on how to start?
0.5(2m)(v_1)² + 0.5(3m)(v_2)²=E
How do i proceed?
Thanks for reading,thinking,replying.
