Question

An ice-skaters of mass 70 kg is moving to the right with a speed of 20 m/s. She bumped into a 62kg ice-skater moving in opposite direction at 13 m/s. Both hold on to each other after the collision. Determine: A) Their final velocity B) the fraction of the initial energy lost

Answer #1

Solution.

Two ice skaters, Daniel (mass 65.0 kg ) and Rebecca (mass 45.0
kg ), are practicing. Daniel stops to tie his shoelace and, while
at rest, is struck by Rebecca, who is moving at 14.0 m/s before she
collides with him. After the collision, Rebecca has a velocity of
magnitude 8.00 m/s at an angle of 55.1 ∘ from her initial
direction. Both skaters move on the frictionless, horizontal
surface of the rink.

Two ice skaters, Daniel (mass 70.0] kg) and Rebecca (mass 50.0
kg) are practicing. Daniel stops to tie his shoelace and, while at
rest, is struck by Rebecca, who is moving at 15.0 m/s before she
collides with him. After the collision, Rebecca has a velocity of
magnitude 7.0 m/s at an angle of 38.0° counterclockwise from her
initial direction (as viewed from above). Both skaters move on the
frictionless, horizontal surface of the rink.

Two ice skaters, Daniel (mass = 65.0 kg) and Rebecca (mass =
45.0 kg) are practicing on the ice. Daniel stops to tie his lace,
and while at rest he is struck by Rebecca, who is moving 12.0 m/s
before she collides with him. After the collision, Rebecca is
moving forward at 8.50 m/s at a 53 degree angle with respect to her
initial direction. What is the velocity vector (magnitude and
direction, or x- and y-components) of Daniel after...
