A 16 kg object with a velocity 7.5 m/s explodes into two equal fragments. One flies off with a velocity 2.5i -2.5j m/s.
What is the velocity of the other fragment in vector notation?

Momentum is conserved. With two masses, the second mass velocity must be the negative of the first.

so the 7.5 is irrelevant ?
