Three deer, DeerA, DeerB, and DeerC, all of mass 70.0 kg are standing on a flat rock of mass kg that is on an ice-covered pond. A gunshot goes off and the deer scatter, with DeerA running at m/s, DeerB running at m/s, and DeerC running at m/s. What is the velocity of the rock on which they were standing?
A rocket of mass 200.0 kg in deep space moves with a velocity of m/s. Suddenly, it explodes into three pieces. The first piece has a mass of 78.0 kg and moves at m/s. The second piece has a mass of 56.0 kg moves at m/s. Find the velocity of the third piece.
