Question

In a lab experiment, you collide a moving cart (m1o = 425 g, v1o = 0.75 m/s to the right) with a stationary cart (m2 = 215 g). After the elastic collision, both carts move to the right with v1f = 0.24 m/s and v2f = 1.05 m/s . Use Fractional Uncertainty to determine if the momentum stayed the same. Use dm = 1.0g and dv = 0.10 m/s for your uncertainty in mass and velocity, respectively.

Answer #1

Two identical carts, each with a mass of 150-g, collide while
moving on a surface. Initially, cart 1 moves at +2.2 m/s and cart 2
moves at +4.2 m/s. After the collision, cart 1 is moving at +3.9
m/s while cart 2 moves at +2.0 m/s. a. Draw a Momentum Diagram for
the collision. b. Determine the momentum of each cart before and
after the collision. c. Determine the total momentum before and
after the collision. d. Was momentum conserved...

Two low-friction physics demo carts collide on a horizontal
track. The first cart, with a mass of 0.150 kg , is moving to the
right with a speed of 0.800 m/s . The second cart, with a mass of
0.298 kg , is moving to the left with a speed of 2.27 m/s . The
carts collide in an elastic collision, such that the total klinetic
energy after the collsion is equal to the total kinetic energy
before the collision....

Imagine two carts of equal mass (m = 1.0 kg) collide. If cart
one is initially moving at 10 m/s and the other cart is stationary,
calculate the final speed of each mass after they have a 100%
elastic collision. Please show all work!

a.find the velocity of the center of mass before the carts Collide
and stick together
b. find the velocity of the center of mass after the carts Collide
and stick together
c. find the kinetic energy of the system before and after the
Collision

Two carts are on an air-track where friction is negligible. The
Incident Cart is moving at an initial velocity of 0.44374 m/s, the
target cart is at rest. The Incident cart has a mass of 490.3 g and
the target cart has a mass of 497.4 g. The final velocity of the
incident cart is 0.043994 m/s and the final velocity of the target
cart is 0.001001 m/s. The collision is elastic.
a) What is the Initial Momentum of the...

A red cart with a mass of 250 g is initially moving east at 2.25
m/s. It collides with a blue cart with a mass of 350 g that is
initially moving west at 0.750 m/s. After the collision the kinetic
energy of the two carts together is 0.200 J more than before the
collision, because the spring plunger of one of the carts pushes
them apart during the collision. After the collision, the two carts
are still moving along...

Cart C is moving to the right at 3 m/s toward cart D, which is
at rest. The cart collide in an elastic collision, and after the
collision cart D is moving to the right at 2.4 m/s. The mass of
cart C is 2kg and the mass of cart D is a 3kg.
What is the total momentum of the cart C + cart D system before
the collision?
What is the speed and direction of cart C after...

Cart 1, with m1= 5.8 kg, is moving on a frictionless linear air
track at an initial speed of 1.8 m/s. It undergoes an elastic
collision with an initially stationary cart 2, with m2, an unknown
mass. After the collision, cart 1 continues in its original
direction at 0.7 m/s. 1) The horizontal component of the momentum
is conserved for cart 1. cart 2. the system of cart 1 and cart 2.
Momentum is not conserved for any of these...

1) You collide two cartselastically. One 2-kg cart is moving to
the right at 3 m/s, and the other is a 3-kg cart that is heading to
the left at 4 m/s. a) What are the final velocities of each cart?
b) What are the final and initial total momentums? How do they
compare? c) What are the final and initial total kinetic energies?
How do they compare?
2) You collide two carts inelastically. One 2-kg cart is moving
to...

A cart with mass 271 g, moving on a frictionless linear air
track at an initial speed of 1.08 m/s hits an initially stationary
cart of unknown mass. After the collision, the first cart continues
in its original direction at 0.92 m/s. The collision is
elastic.
(a) What is the mass of the second cart?
(b) What is the speed of the second cart?
A block of mass 0.29 kg is placed on top of a light, vertical
spring of...
