A nucleus, initially at rest, decays radioactivly, leaving a residual nucleus. In the process, it emits two paricles horizontally: an electron with momentum 9.0 x 10^-21 kg m/s [E] and a neutrino with momentum 4.8 x 10^-21 kg m/s [S]. In what direction does the residual ...

A 0.5 kg ball is thrown horizontally towards a wall with a speed of 10 m/s. The initial velocity is chosen to be the positive x-direction for this question. The ball horizontally rebounds back from the wall with a speed of 10 m/s in the negative x-direction. What is momentum ...
