A projectile is fired upwards at a speed of 100 m/s at an angle of 37 with the horizontal.it explodes into two parts at the highest point in the mass ratio 1:3 and the lighter one comes to rest. The distance from the point of projection where the heavier mass lands is (g=10m/s^2)

    At highest point v=100cos37=80m/s If total mass of body is m, then masses of two pieces will be m/4 and 3m/4. The lighter one comes to a rest . By momentum conservation, velocity of 3m/4=4*80/3=320/3 m/s This new projectile will now cover a horizontal distance from its point of formation i.e. the highest point in the trajectory of previous projectile ,s=v*sqrt(2h/g) where v=320/3 as found before. and h is the point of maximum height found by applying kinematics to the projectile of mass m. The total distance from point of projection =s+ half of the range of previous projectile. The range can be calculated just like maximum height i.e. apply kinematics to it. I find it convinient to remember the formulas for range and max height h=(v sintheta)^2/2g Range,r=v^2 sin(2*theta)/g here theta=37 v=100

    R is the range ..(X com) is the centre of mass of the system..

    there is no external force so centre of mass will be same at intial and final so ,i have applied this concept..

    sorry yahoo (xcom) without explosion =4m *R xcom after explosion =m*R/2 + k*3m ..then equate both then you will get right answer

    here explosion is self explosion i.e no external force is here so we apply this method

    An isolated particle of mass m is moving in horizontal plane (X-Y),along x-axis,at a certain height above the ground.it suddenly exlodes into two fragment of masses m/4 and 3m/4.An instant later the smaller fragment is at y=15 cm .what will be the position of larger fragment at this instant ???

    HINT: the body is moving on the x axis that is there is no motion along y axis this means the momentum will be zero along y-axis at any time

    then the momentum will be zero along x -axis at any time..because there is no component of velocity along Xaxis
