a bullet of mass 20 grams is horizontally fired with a volicity of 150 mls from pistal of mass 2 kg what is the recoil volicity of pistal

### Mass of bullet, m1 = 20g (= 0.02 kg)Mass of pistol, m2 = 2 kgInitial velocity of the bullet (u1) and pistol (u2) = 0Final velocity of the bullet, v1 = +150m s-1Let v be the recoil velocity of the pistol.The total momentum of the pistol and bullet is zero before the fire. (Since both are at rest)Total momentum of the pistol and bullet after it is fired is= (0.02 kg x 150 m s-1) + (2 kg x v m s-1)= (3 + 2v) kg m s-1Total momentum after the fire = Total momentum before the fire 3 + 2v = 0→v = -1.5 m/s  Thus, the recoil velocity of the pistol is 1.5 m/s.
