Statement of a problem № 11265


Object 1 is moving along the x axis with an initial momentum of 116 kg ⋅ m/s, where the + sign indicates that it is moving to the right. As the drawing shows, object 1 collides with a second object that is initially at rest. The collision is not head-on, so the objects move off in different directions after the collision. The net external force acting on the two-object system is zero. After the collision, object 1 has a momentum whose y component is - 5 kg ⋅ m/s. What is the y component of the momentum of object 2 after the collision? (a) 0 kg ⋅ m/s (b) 116 kg ⋅ m/s (c) 15 kg ⋅ m/s (d) 216 kg ⋅ m/s (e) The y component of the momentum of object 2 cannot be determined.
