**drwls**, Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 8:00pmMomentum is conserved (always).

Final Vx = 9.5 m/s (for equal masses)

Final Vy = 15.5 m/s (for equal masses)

Use the Pythagorean theorem for magnitude.

Direction = arctan 31/19 = 58.5 degrees from +x axis, towards +y

**Mike**, Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 10:22pmThe electronic flash attachment for a camera contains a capacitor for storing the energy used to produce the flash. In one such unit, the potential difference between the plates of a 775 µF capacitor is 330 V.

(a) Determine the energy that is used to produce the flash in this unit.

(b) Assuming that the flash lasts for 5.0*10^-3 s, find the effective power or "wattage" of the flash.

So far:

0.000775 Farads= Coulumbs / 330V

Coulumbs=0.25575C

Now here I'm not sure what to do next.

But I push on:

1A=1C/s

So:

0.25575C/5x10^-3s=51.15A

P=IV

P=51.15A*330V=16879.5W

But, that answer is kicked backed as wrong, and I'm not quite sure how to go about part A.
