An explosion breaks a 10 kg object (originally at rest) into two pieces, one of which is two times the mass of the
other. If 8000 J is released in the explosion, a) how fast are the pieces moving away from their original location?
b)how much kinetic energy does each piece have after the explosion?
c) Discuss whether or not your answers to parts a and b are reasonable. Include specific reasons why you think
they are or are not reasonable.
