A heavy 3.8 kg block moves at 4.2 m/s and then makes a head-on
elastic collision with a lighter, stationary block of mass 1.7 kg.
Use conservation of momentum and the fact that the relative speed
of recession equals the relative speed of approach to find velocity
of each block after the collision. Check your answer by calculating
the initial and final kinetic energies of each block.

A 120-kg block slides towards a stationary 55-kg block at a
speed of 6 m/s. What is the maximum possible loss of kinetic energy
(in joules) for this collision? Round to the nearest integer.
Hint: What kind of collision leads to the greatest loss of
kinetic energy? Use conservation of momentum to find the velocities
of each block after the collision.

a
1.2 kg ball moving with a velocity of 8.0m/s collides head on with
a stationary ball and bounces back at a velocity or 4.0 m/s. If the
collision is perfectly elastic, calculate (a) the mass of the other
ball (b) the velocity of the other ball after the collision (c) the
momentum of each ball before and after the collision (d) the
kinetic energy of each ball before and after the collision

A 5 kg block with a speed of 3.0 m/s collides with a 10 kg block
that has a speed of 2.0 m/s in the same direction. After the
collision, the 10 kg block travels in the original direction with a
speed of 2.5 m/s. (a) Draw (i) a before/after sketch, (ii) momentum
& energy bar diagrams of the situation, and (iii) identify the
collision as elastic, inelastic and completely inelastic. (b) what
is the velocity of the 5.0 kg...

A 2.84 kg block, traveling at a speed of 12.4 m/s, undergoes a
perfectly inelastic
collision with a 3.68 kg block which starts at rest.
a) Find the final speed of each block.
b) Calculate how much energy was lost in the collision (final
kinetic energy minus initial kinetic
energy). If you were unable to calculate the answer to part (a),
assume the final velocity is 5.00 m/s.
c) How much energy would have been lost if the collision were...

on collision with a 2.50 kg bowling pin initially at rest. Find the
velocity of the bowling pin after the collision.

A block of mass m=1.4 kg, moving on frictionless surface with a
speed v1i=5.3 m/s, makes a perfectly elastic collision with a block
of mass M at rest, see the sketch. After the collision, the 1.4 kg
block recoils with a speed of v1f=0.3 m/s. What is the speed of
block M after the collision?

C.
v2f=3.4 m/s
D.
v2f=5.0 m/s

A 7.0 kg block with a speed of 3.0 m/s collides with a 14.0 kg
block that has a speed of 2.0 m/s in the same direction. After the
collision, the 14.0 kg block is observed to be traveling in the
original direction with a speed of 2.5 m/s. (a)

collision? (b) By how much does the total kinetic
energy of the system of two blocks change because...

A 0.060-kg tennis ball, moving with a speed of 5.6 m/s , has a
head-on collision with a 0.10-kg ball initially moving in the same
direction at a speed of 3.4 m/s .
Assuming a perfectly elastic collision, determine the speed of
each ball after the collision.

a 1.5 kg car (1) initially moving at 4.0 m/s to the right
collides with a 2.0 kg car (2) initially moving at 2.0 m/s to the
left. After the inelastic collision, car 1 is moving to the left at
1.2 m/s

collision?
B) What is the change in total kinetic energy and the percentage
