When an object is thrown along a parabolic path on bursting why does the COM continue to move in par

Expert Answer:

When a cracker bursts while moving, the com continues to follow its original trajectory. This is because no external forces act on the cracker. The only forces that are acting are internal forces and this will not accelerate the com. So the com continues to move along the same parabolic path.
