Mass of the gun, M = 100 kg Mass of the shell, m = 0.020 kg Muzzle speed of the shell, v = 80 m/s Recoil speed of the gun = V Both the gun and the shell are at rest initially. Initial momentum of the system = 0 Final momentum of the system = mv â?? MV Here, the negative sign appears because the...

Mass of the gun, M = 100 kg Mass of the shell, m = 0.020 kg Muzzle speed of the shell, v = 80 m/s Recoil speed of the gun = V Both the gun and the shell are at rest initially. Initial momentum of the system = 0 Final momentum of the system = mv â?? MV Here, the negative sign appears because the directions of the shell and the gun are opposite to each other. According to the law of conservation of momentum: Final momentum = Initial momentum mv â?? MV = 0 â?´ V = mv / M = 0.020 Ã? 80 / (100 Ã? 1000) = 0.016 m/s

apply Newtons 3rd law of motion- Action = reaction Kinetic energy of sheel = Kinetic energy of gun 0.020*80*80/2 = 100*v*v/2 v = 1.13 metre/sec hence recoil speed of gun = 1.13 metre/sec

By law of conservation of momentum, m1v1+m2v2=m1u1+m2u2 =>0.020Ã?80 +100Ã?v2=0 =>1.6+100v2=0 =>v2=-1.6/100=-0.016m/s

here momentum is conserved..try m1v1=m2v2..this will give v2=0.016 m/s.

Fixity is always needed for rotational motion?

Yes for pure rotation, the distance between two particles will always remain constant.

The Earth moving round the Sun in a circular orbit is acted upon by a force, and hence
work must be done on the Earth by this force. Do you agree with this statement?
The force on earth jn circular trajectory is gravity,acting radially inward...the direction of motion is tangential.....as u knw work is dot product of force and dx, the work done is zero.
