Question

a cart of mass m traveling on a horizontal air track with a speed of ov vo=5.0 m/s collides with a stationary cart of mass 3m. the carts stick together after the collision. What is the speed of the carts after the collision?

Answer #1

Let the speed of the carts after the collision is v.

The initial speed of the cart with mass m is v_{o}=5.0
m/s.

The speed of the cart with mass 3m is u=0 m/s.

We know from the conservation of energy

The speed of the carts after the collision is 1.25 m/s.

A cart of mass m traveling to the right on a frictionless
track with a speed of 4v0 collides with another cart of mass 2M
traveling to the left with speed v0. If the collision is perfectly
elastic, and carts travel in opposite directions after the
collision, determine the speeds of the two carts immediately after
the collision in terms of m and v0.

A runaway rail cart with mass 5000kg traveling on a horizontal
frictionless track with 100ms-1velocity collides with a
similar cart at rest but free to move(no brakes
on). Upon the collision, the two carts attached together (coalesce)
and travel together. Calculate the final velocity of the two carts
system.

Two carts are on an air-track where friction is negligible. The
Incident Cart is moving at an initial velocity of 0.25080m/s, the
target cart is at rest. The Incident cart has a mass of 995.8 g and
the target cart has a mass of 490.3 g. The carts stick together,
the final velocity after collision is 0.077302 m/s. The collision
is considered inelastic.

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....

2 air carts collide and stick together. cart one is M1
= 0.755 kg and initial speed of 0.435 m/s the cart to right is
initially at rest with mass m2= 0.300kg.
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

A small, 100 g cart is moving at 1.90 m/s on an air track when
it collides with a larger, 2.00 kg cart at rest. After the
collision, the small cart recoils at 0.820 m/s . What is the speed
of the large cart after the collision?

Two carts are rolling to the right along the same level track.
Cart 1 (m1 = 3.81 kg) is in the rear, rolling at a speed of 6.25
m/s and catching up to cart 2, rolling at 3.07 m/s.
Round final results to 3 digits.
a) Cart 1 of course overtakes and collides with cart 2. Velcro
pads on the carts make them stick together during the collision,
after which they both continue rolling right, but at a speed of...

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.

An air-track cart with mass m1=0.32kg and initial speed
v0=0.75m/s collides with and sticks to a second cart that is at
rest initially. If the mass of the second cart is m2=0.43kg, how
much kinetic energy is lost as a result of the collision?

An air-track cart with mass m1=0.29kg and initial speed
v0=0.80m/s collides with and sticks to a second cart that
is at rest initially.
If the mass of the second cart is m2=0.51kg, how much
kinetic energy is lost as a result of the collision?
