# If An Object Explodes With A Force, What Force Are Fragments Given?

So let's say for example I have an object with 5kg of mass.

It explodes with a force of 500N.

The object fragments into four fragments: a 0.5kg, a 1kg, a 1.5kg and a 2kg object.

What force does each of those fragments have (and thus what acceleration)?

My assumption is that it will get a percentage of the force relative to the percentage of the mass. So the 1kg fragment is 1/5th of the original mass thus it gets 1/5th of the force?
