Question

A cart of mass 500 kg experiences an impulse of 11N * s. Afterwards the cart is seen to move with a velocity of 12 m/s and is moving to the left.

a. What is the final momentum of the cart (remember the signs!)?

b. What is the carts initial momentum and initial velocity (Again, remember your signs!!)?

Answer #1

**Answer :-- since the impulse = change in the
momentum**

**so during the collision the change in momentum = 11 N-s
=
**

**NOW final momentum of the cart is = mass
final velocity of the cart.**

**i.e. final momentum = 500
(-12) = -6000 kg-m/s .(where -ve sign indicates the motion toward
left.).**

**let initial momentum = p****than change in momentum is given by**- ................................(answer)
- now initial velocity is given as
- .......................(answer)

a)A 0.05 kg mass is used to accelerate a cart. At t=1 second,
the 0.5 kg cart is at x=0.5 m, at rest. At t=2.5 seconds, the cart
is at 1.5 m, traveling at 1.3 ± 0.3 m/s. Calculate and compare the
impulse with the total change in momentum of the cart and mass.
(Read the theory and sections 1.5 through 1.7 if you’re not sure
how to do this.)

Two carts are on an air-track where friction is negligible. The
Incident Cart is moving at an initial velocity of 0.44374 m/s, the
target cart is at rest. The Incident cart has a mass of 490.3 g and
the target cart has a mass of 497.4 g. The final velocity of the
incident cart is 0.043994 m/s and the final velocity of the target
cart is 0.001001 m/s. The collision is elastic.

Question 1:
part a)
Cart 1, having mass m1 = 3.0-kg, moving to the right
with a speed of 1.0 m/s has a head-on collision with cart 2 of mass
m2 = 3.0-kg that is initially moving to the left with a
speed of 1.0 m/s. After the collision, the cart 1 is moving to the
left with a speed of 1.0 m/s. What is the final velocity of cart
2?
part b) An object's velocity of +4.10 m/s changes...

Cart A has a mass of 5 kg and is moving in the
+x direction at 2 m/s. Cart B has a mass of 2 kg
and is moving in the +y direction at 5 m/s.
Do the two carts have the same momentum? Explain.
Yes, they both have a momentum of magnitude 10.
No, they do not have the same momentum because they move in
different directions.
Is the magnitude of the momentum of each cart the same?
Explain....

1.
Assume the cart has a mass of m, and that the carts are oriented so
that their velcro bumpers face each other. one of the carts is
placed on middle of the track and the other on the far left of the
track. suppose you push the cart gently on the left side toward the
cart at rest so that the carts collide.

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.

1) You collide two cartselastically. One 2-kg cart is moving to
the right at 3 m/s, and the other is a 3-kg cart that is heading to
the left at 4 m/s. a) What are the final velocities of each cart?
b) What are the final and initial total momentums? How do they
compare? c) What are the final and initial total kinetic energies?
How do they compare?
2) You collide two carts inelastically. One 2-kg cart is moving

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....

A red cart with a mass of 250 g is initially moving east at 2.25
m/s. It collides with a blue cart with a mass of 350 g that is
initially moving west at 0.750 m/s. After the collision the kinetic
energy of the two carts together is 0.200 J more than before the
collision, because the spring plunger of one of the carts pushes
them apart during the collision. After the collision, the two carts
are still moving along...

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.
