Question

A 520 kg cannon fires a 5.6 kg cannon ball horizontally.  The recoil speed of the cannon at the moment of firing is 3.2 m/s.  The cannon is free to move horizontally.  

[Ignore effects of gravity, friction, and drag.]

Can you explain how to get the speed of cannon ball? [Conservatoin of energy momentum...something about before and after]]
