Question

A relativistic particle is moving with a velocity of (3.0x105 m/s) i + (4.0x106 m/s) j. Another relativistic particle which is 4 times massive than the first particle is moving with velocity of (3.0x105 m/s) i - (1.0x106 m/s) j. The particles collide and the collision is perfectly inelastic.

a. What are the velocities of the particles just after the collision?

b. What percent of energy is lost just after the collision?

Answer #1

A relativistic particle is moving with a velocity of (3.0x10^5
m/s) i + (4.0x10^6 m/s) j. Another relativistic particle which is 4
times massive than the first particle is moving with velocity of
(3.0x10^5 m/s) i - (1.0x10^6 m/s) j. The particles collide and the
collision is perfectly inelastic.
What are the velocities of the particles just after the
collision?
What percent of energy is lost just after the collision?

A 85 kg fullback moving east with a speed of 6.0 m/s is tackled
by a 98 kg opponent running north at 2.0 m/s. (a) If the collision
is perfectly inelastic, calculate the velocity of the players just
after the tackle. m/s (b) If the collision is perfectly inelastic,
calculate the kinetic energy lost as a result of the collision. J
Can you account for the missing energy?

1. A mass ma=2m, with an initial
velocity of 4 m/s, and a mass mb=m,
initially at rest, undergo an elastic collision. Calculate their
final velocities after the collision.

A particle of mass 2 kg and velocity 5 m/s collides head on with
another particle of mass 4 kg originally at rest. After the
collision, the particle 1 continues in the same direction with the
speed of 2.5 m/s. a. The velocity of particle 2 after collision is
m/s. b. The energy (absolute value) lost in this collision is

A 88 kg fullback moving east with a speed of 6.0 m/s is tackled
by a 100 kg opponent running north at 2.0 m/s. If the collision is
perfectly inelastic, calculate each of the following.
(a) the velocity of the players just after the tackle
_____ m/s
(b) the kinetic energy lost as a result of the collision
_____J
Can you account for the missing energy?

A 200-g particle moving at 5.0 m/s on a frictionless horizontal
surface collides with a 300-g particle initially at rest. After the
collision the 300-g object has a velocity of 2.0 m/s at 45o below
the direction of motion of the incoming particle. What is the
velocity of the incoming particle after the collision? What
percentage of the initial kinetic energy is lost in the
collision?

Consider object-1 of mass m1=652gram moving on the +X axis with
the velocity of v1=13.5 m/s. Object-1 collide with stationary
object-2 of mass m2=846gram on the X-axis. After collision, both
objects are moving X-axis. a) Consider the collision is inelastic,
and two objects combined into one object after the collision. Find
the velocity of the combined object after collision? Consider the
collision remains about 1.82ms. find the impulse acts on object-1
during the collision . Find the energy lost due...

A particle of mass m1 = 1.32 kg with an
initial velocity v1 = 4.56 m/s
has a completely inelastic collision with a second particle of mass
m2 = 3.68 kg with an initial velocity
v2 = 3.06 m/s. What is the
velocity of the combined particles immediately after the collision?
(Express your answer in vector form.)

A particle m1 = 0.500 kg moving with a velocity of v1 = (3.60
m/s, 25.0°) collides and sticks with another
particle m2 = 1.50 kg moving with a velocity of v2 = (2.00 m/s,
180.0°). Find the final velocity of the system after
the collision. Find the ij vector and the magnitude and direction
using the vector components method. Then use
the graphical method to scale to find the magnitude and direction.
The two methods should compare within a...

A mass (m) moves along the x-axis with velocity 2v. Another
particle of mass (2m) moves with velocity v along the y-axis.
1) If the two objects collide inelastically and merge, how much
kinetic energy is lost to heat?
2) If instead they collide elastically and it turns out that m
still moves purely along the x-axis, what is it's velocity in the
final state?
It may help to find the velocities of these particles in the
center of mass...
