I need help....! A bomb explodes into three identical pieces. One flies in the + y-direction at 17.3 m/s, a second in the - x-direction at 11.6 m/s. What's the magnitude of the velocity of the third piece? What's the direction of the velocity of the third piece? Count counterclockwise from the + x axis.
