A cannon shoots a shell straight up. It reaches its maximum height, 837 feet, and splits into two pieces, one weighing 2 lb and the other 5 lb. The two pieces are observed to strike the ground simultaneously. The 5 lb piece hits the ground 1,564 feet away from the explosion (measured along the x axis). Find the magnitude of the momentum of the 5 kg piece just before it strikes the ground.
