Problem 7DQ

A woman holding a large rock stands on a frictionless, horizontal sheet of ice. She throws the rock with speed v0 at an angle ? above the horizontal. Consider the system consisting of the woman plus the rock. Is the momentum of the system conserved? Why or why not? Is any component of the momentum of the system conserved? Again, why or why not?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution to 7DQ Step 1 Yes, the moment of the system is conserved. The woman stands on the frictionless ice, therefore the woman will move backward when she throws the ball. Thus, the momentum is conserved for the horizontal component of motion. Since the ice does not break, there is no vertical component of motion for the woman, thus for vertical motion, the momentum is not conserved. But for horizontal component, the women will have an equal backward motion with respect to the ball.
