8.98 … A 12.0-kg shell is launched at an angle of 55.0_ above the horizontal with an initial speed of 150 m>s. At its highest point the shell explodes into two fragments one three times heavier than the other. The two fragments reach the ground at the same time. Ignore air resistance. If the heavier fragment lands back at the point from which the shell was launched where will the lighter fragment land and how much energy was released in the explosion?

I have not created a lesson for this question yet.

Please leave a comment below with specifics about the question, and I will make a detailed lesson on it as soon as possible. (I can usually have something up within a day.)

NEED IMMEDIATE HELP? Get the student solution manual here: University Physics Manual otherwise, I should be able to get a video lesson up within a day or so.
