Question

A 2.0-N puck is traveling at 3.0 m/s. It strikes an 4.0-N puck, which is moving at – 2.0 m/s before collision. The two pucks stick together. Find their common final speed

Answer #1

On a frictionless, horizontal air table, puck A (with mass 0.250
kg ) is moving toward puck B (with mass 0.400 kg )
A -After the collision, puck A has a velocity of 0.150 m/s to
the left, and puck B has velocity 0.750 m/s to the right. What was
the speed of puck A before the collision?
B- If the two pucks collide and stick together with a final
velocity of 0.6000 m/s to the right, what was the...

1. A 8600kg boxcar is traveling at 12 m/s strikes a second
boxcar of mass 7900 kg moving in the same direction. The two stick
together and move off with a speed of 5.25 m/s. What was the
original speed of the second boxcar? Explain your reasoning.
2. How much kinetic energy was lost in the collision?

Ball A with a mass of 2.0 kilograms is traveling at 6.5 m/s
strikes Ball B with a mass 4.0 kilograms which is at rest. After
the collision, Ball A moves away at an angle of 40.0 degrees above
the x-axis and Ball B moves away at an angle of -20.0 degrees below
the x-axis. What are the final velocities of each
ball?

A 2.00 kg puck moving to the right at a velocity of 6.0m/s at an
angle of 45.0 degrees below the horizontal collides with a 1.0 kg
puck traveling to the right at a velocity of 3.0 m/s at an angle of
45.0 degrees above the horizontal. After the collision, the 2.0 kg
puck moves toward the right at a velocity of 4.5 m/s at an angle of
25.0 degrees below the horizontal. What is the velocity of the 1.0...

The drawing shows a collision between two pucks on an air-hockey
table. Puck A has a mass of 0.20 kg and is moving along the
x axis with a velocity of 6.60 m/s. It makes a collision
with puck B, which has a mass of 0.40 kg and is initially at rest.
After the collision, the two pucks fly apart with angles as shown
in the drawing (α = 62° and β = 40°). Find the final speed of puck...

A puck of radius 2R approaches two smaller pucks of radius R at
0.4 m/s along a line between them. It strikes them simultaneously
pushing them away at the same angle above and below the original
puck direction. The collision causes the large puck to slow to 0.2
m/s. The pucks all have the same thickness and density. a) What is
the x-component of the velocity of the smaller pucks after the
collision in m/s? b) What is the magnitude...

A 0.10 kg object with a speed of 2.0 m/s in the +x direction
makes a head-on elastic collision with a 0.15 kg object moving in
the -x direction with a speed of 3.0 m/s. What is the final
velocity of the 0.10 kg object after the collision?
a. – 4.0 m/s
b. + 1.0 m/s
c. - 1.0 m/s
d. + 4.0 m/s

A bowling ball with a mass of 4.0 kilograms is traveling at 8.0
m/s strikes a larger bowling ball with a mass 6.0 kilograms which
is at rest. After the collision, the smaller ball moves at an
unknown velocity 30.0 degrees above the x-axis and the larger ball
moves at an unknown velocity 13.0 degrees below the x-axis. What
are the final velocities of each ball?

A 41 g marble moving at 2.0 m/s strikes a 21 g marble at rest.
Assume the collision is perfectly elastic and the marbles collide
head-on. a:What is the speed of the first marble immediately after
the collision? b:What is the speed of the second marble immediately
after the collision?

A 100-gram hockey puck is initially moving horizontally to
the left at a speed of 10 m/s, but is then slapped with a
hockey stick to the right and moves off with a speed of 20
m/s. If the collision time between the hockey stick and the puck is
∆t = 0.030 s, what is the average force of the hockey
stick on the puck, in Newtons?
