A cannon on a railroad car is facing in a direction parallel to the tracks. It fires a 99 kg shell at a speed of 105 m/s (relative to the ground) at an angle of 60.0° above the horizontal. If the cannon plus car have a mass of 5.5 104 kg, what is the recoil speed of the car if it was at rest before the cannon was fired?
