Answer Key : (a) -

(a)

In case of projectile motion as at the highest point

and

The initial linear momentum of the system will be

Now as force of blasting is internal and force of gravity is vertical, so linear momentum of the system along horizontal is conserved, i.e.,

But it is given that  and as one part retraces its path,

Solving, we get



Next Question :

In problem 5, the moment of inertia of the system about an axis passing through the point of intersection of diagonals and perpendicular to the plane of the square is

a)

b)

c)

d)
