A two-stage rocket moves in space at a constant velocity of 4650 m/s. The two stages are then separated by a small explosive charge placed between them. Immediately after the explosion the velocity of the 1240-kg upper stage is 5640 m/s in the same direction as before the explosion. What is the velocity (magnitude and direction) of the 2320-kg lower stage after the explosion?
