Question

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.

Answer #1

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 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?

A 2.9-kg cart is rolling along a frictionless, horizontal track
towards a 1.7-kg cart that is held initially at rest. The carts are
loaded with strong magnets that cause them to attract one another.
Thus, the speed of each cart increases. At a certain instant before
the carts collide, the first cart's velocity is +4.3 m/s, and the
second cart's velocity is -2.8 m/s. (a) What is
the total momentum of the system of the two carts at this instant?...

A 2.9-kg cart is rolling across a frictionless, horizontal track
toward a 1.4-kg cart that is held initially at rest. The carts are
loaded with strong magnets that cause them to attract one another.
Thus, the speed of each cart increases. At a certain instant before
the carts collide, the first cart's velocity is +4.3 m/s, and the
second cart's velocity is −1.9 m/s.
(Indicate the direction with the sign of your answer.)

A 0.40 kg cart is moving at 3 m/s on a frictionless track where
it collides with a stationary 0.80 kg cart and two stick together.
What is the final velocity of the pair ?

A 2.002.3-kg cart is rolling across a frictionless, horizontal
track toward a 0.601.5-kg cart that is held initially at rest. The
carts are loaded with strong magnets that cause them to attract one
another. Thus, the speed of each cart increases. At a certain
instant before the carts collide, the first cart’s velocity is 4.80
14.5 m/s, and the second cart’s velocity is 1.9021.9 m/s. What was
the velocity of the first cart when the second cart was still at...

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.

A 250 g cart is on a frictionless horizontal track. The cart is
attached to a spring of spring constant 125 N/m whose free end is
fastened to the end of the track. A 100 g soft iron mass is sitting
on and moving with the cart so that the total mass is 350 g. The
cart and mass are given a 5.00 cm displacement from their
equilibrium position and released. Determine the
(A)
(i) equation of motion for the...

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....

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.
