# Explosions and Velocity#

Savannah put a bunch of explosives inside of a 6 $$\rm{kg}$$ pumpkin, which explodes in two pieces, traveling in the same direction. Piece A has mass $$m_A$$ = 4 $$\rm{kg}$$ and velocity $$v_A$$ = 33 $$\rm{m/s}$$. Piece B has mass $$m_B$$ = 2 $$\rm{kg}$$ and velocity $$v_B$$ = 33 $$\rm{m/s}$$.

## Part 1#

Is it true that the pumpkin must initially have had velocity $$v$$ = 33.0 $$\rm{m/s}$$ ?

• No, because the velocity should be $$v$$ = 66 $$\rm{m/s}$$
• No, because the velocity should be $$v$$ = 11.0 $$\rm{m/s/kg}$$
