A Shell of Mass M Moving With Velocity v Suddenly Breaks Into 2 Pieces. The Part Having Mass M/4 Remains Stationary. The Velocity of the Other Shell Will Be

(A) v

(B) 2v

(C) 3/4 v

(D) 4/3 v

A correct answer is an option (D) 4/3 v

According to the conservation of momentum, mV =(m/4)V1 + (3m/4)V2

Therefore, V2 = (4/3)V.
