I got part C's initial velocity as 10.05m/s.

Now i want to use y = 10.05sinAt + 4.9t^2

to find t

then use t to find the distance. But how do i find the angle A part C moves at?

**drwls**, Monday, December 22, 2008 at 4:56pmThe angle that part C moves at can be figured out by applying a momentum balance.

Initial skyrocket momentum at maximum height = 0

= sum of the momenta of parts A, B and C

The mass of part C is 9.3 - 0.5 - 1.0 = 7.8 kg. Its upward momentum component is the same as part A's but in the opposite direction (up). Its horizontal momentum component is the same as part B's, but to the left.

I am neglecting the momentum of gases released in the separation explosion, but this is probably OK.
