# Homework Help: physics

Posted by riley on Thursday, August 19, 2010 at 10:05am.

A 0.25 kg skeet (clay target) is fired at an angle of 30 degrees to the horizon with a speed of 25 m/s. When it reaches the maximum height, it is hit from below by a 15 g pellet travelling upward at a speed of 200 m/s. The pellet is embedded in the skeet. (a) How much higher did the skeet go up? (b) How much extra distance does the skeet travel because of the collision?

does this problem involve projectile motion?

Yes, it is a projectile motion problem, with conservation of momentum thrown in at the peak.
