Physics

Two objects with masses represented by m1 and m2 are moving such that their combined total momentum has a magnitude of 16.3 kg · m/s and points in a direction 71.5° above the positive x-axis. Object m1 is moving in the x direction with a speed of v1 = 2.84 m/s and m2 is moving in the y direction with a speed of v2 = 3.00 m/s. Determine the mass of each object.

  1. m1v1+m2V2=16.3(cos71.5i + sin71.5j)

    m1*2.84i+m2*3j=above

    set the i components = icomponents solve
    and set the j components=jcomponetns solve
