The velocity (magnitude and direction) of the canoe to the river is
0.4cos45=0.5vcrE
vcrE=0.50.4cos45=0.22 ms
vcrS=0.4sin450.28 ms South
vcr=vcrE2+vcrS2=0.36 ms
θ=arctanvcrSvcrE=52 S of E

In Figure, a stationary block explodes into two pieces and R that slide across a frictionless floor and then into regions with friction, where they stop. Piece L, with a mass of 2.6 kg, encounters a coefficient of kinetic friction μL=0.40 and slides to a stop in distance deal = 0.15 m. Piece R encounters a coefficient of kinetic friction μR=0.50 and slides to a stop in distanced R=0.30 m. What was the mass of the original block?
