A 5.00kg ornament is hanging by a 1.2m wire when it is suddenly hit by a 3.00kg missile traveling horizontally at 10.0 m/s. The missile embeds itself in the ornament during the collision.
What is the tension in the wire immediately after the collision?

  • Physics -

    tension will be (mg+mv^2/r) where v is the velocity of the ornament. use condervation of momentum to find V.
