Question

A car has a mass of 1000kg. The car is moving at 20.00m/s due North. A small explosion inside the car splits it into two perfect equal mass pieces each moving North. The back half of the car is at rest after the explosion. What is the momentum of the front half of the car immediately after the explosion?

A. 10,000kg m/s

B. Can't be determined

C. Zero

D. 14,142 kg m/s

E 20,000 kg m/s

Answer #1

According to law of conservation of linear momentum,

total momentum before collision=total momenrum after collision

m1u1+m2u2=m1v1+m2v2

Before collision car act as a single body and after collision it breaks in to two parts also there is no change in direction after collision hence above equation becomes,

MV=mv+m(0)

Where M is mass of car before collision and m is mass of each part after collision.

Therefore, 1000x20=mv

mv=20000kgm/s is the momentum of second part.

Question1) A car moving North at 12 m/s strikes a stationary car
of equal mass. The first car moves off after the collision at an
angle of 30° East of North with a speed of 8.0 m/s.
a. What is the velocity of the struck car just after
the collision?
b. Show that the collision is inelastic.
c. Explain how dents, skid marks, etc. show that
kinetic energy has been lost.
d. If the collision were perfectly elastic, what would...

A 2,500-kg car moving east at 10.0 m/s collides with a 3,000-kg
car moving north. The cars stick together and move as a unit after
the collision, at an angle of 35.0 degrees north of east and at a
speed of 5.55 m/s. Find the speed of the 3,000-kg car before the
collision.

velocity of the joined cars after the collision?

A 1000-kg sports car is moving north at speed 15 m/s on a level
road when it collides with a 2000-kg truck driving east on the same
road at speed 10 m/s. The two vehicles remain locked moving
together after the collision at the origin of x-y plane. Assume
that the rolling friction is too small to be ignored.
A) explain what type of collision it is
B) indicate the vector momentum by showing its magnitude and the
(direction) angle...

A car (mass = 2581 kg) is moving directly north at 4.88 m/s when
it experiences an impulse of 10,001 (kg*m)/s at 34.7° East of
North. What is the car’s final velocity vector? Give the vector in
terms of magnitude and direction.

Object A is moving due east, while object B is moving due north.
They collide and stick together in a completely inelastic
collision. Momentum is conserved. Object A has a mass of mA = 16.0
kg and an initial velocity of v0A = 7.95 m/s, due east. Object B,
however, has a mass of mB = 30.5 kg and an initial velocity of v0B
= 4.85 m/s, due north. Find the magnitude of the final velocity of
the two-object system...

A 1000-kg car moving north with a speed of 25.0 m/s collides
with a 2000- kg truck moving at an angle of 30° north of west with
a speed of 20.0 mjs. After the collision, the car and the truck
stuck together. What is the magnitude of their common velocity
after the collision?

A 2500 kg car moving east at 10.0 m/s collides with a 3000 kg
car moving north. The cars stick together and move as a unit after
the collision, at an angle of 47.0° north of east and at a speed of
6.66 m/s. Find the velocity of the 3000 kg car before the
collision. m/s north

A 900 kg car moving East with speed of 20 m/s collides with a
1500 kg car moving North with speed of 15 m/s at an intersection.
Both cars stick together after collision. What is the speed and
direction of these two stuck cars immediately after this
collision?
