A satellite that is spinning clockwise has four low-mass solar panels sticking out as shown; the mass of the satellite is 750 kg. A tiny meteor of mass 2 kg traveling at high speed rips through one of the solar panels and continues in the same direction but at reduced speed. In the figure v1 = 1000 and v2 = 660 are the initial and final speeds of the meteor, and v = 13 is the initial speed of the satellite in the x direction. The angle θ = 31°, h = 3 m, and R = 1.4 m.

  2. the question does not have a question.

  3. Oh sorry the question is Calculate the final velocity of the center of mass of the satellite:

  4. I have no idea what the angle is, maybe the angle the meteor hits relative to some direction.

    Find the initial and final momentum of the meteor IN THE XDIRECTION>

    Find the initial momentum of the satellite in the X direction.

    Final momentum satellite= Initial momentum+change momentum of the meteor.

  5. well there's a picture too but i don't know if i can post that on here

  6. and that didn't seem to work for me because i got like 13.777 for the velocity of the center of mass do I have to use the radius of the satellite at all in the question?
