Problem 20CQ

Professional Application Suppose a fireworks shell explodes, breaking into three large pieces for which air resistance is negligible. How is the motion of the center of mass affected by the explosion? How would it be affected if the pieces experienced significantly more air resistance than the intact shell?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution Step 1 of 2 If a firework shell explodes, that means, this is a perfect inelastic collision. So, the kinetic energy will not be conserved, only momentum will be conserved.

Step 2 of 2
