Skater A has a mass of 72 . 5 kg and travels in the + x direction at 2 . 88 m / s. Skater B has a mass of 62 . 5 kg and is moving in the + y direction at 0 . 982 m / s. They collide and cling together. Find the final speed of the couple. Correct answer: 1 . 6121 m / s (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: From conservation of momentum ∆ p = 0 m A v A ˆ ı + m B v B ˆ = ( m A + m B ) v f Therefore v f = radicalbig ( m A v A ) 2 + ( m B v B ) 2 m A + m B = radicalbig (208 . 8 kg m / s) 2 + (61 . 375 kg m / s) 2 72 . 5 kg + 62 . 5 kg = 1 . 6121 m / s Question 2 part 1 of 2 10 points m 1 1 m 2 before after v v v 2 v m 1 m 2 3 4 α β An m 2 = 1 . 6 kg can of soup is thrown upward with a velocity of v 2 = 5 . 6 m / s. It is immediately struck from the side by an m 1 = 0 . 6 kg rock traveling at v 1 = 8 . 2 m / s. The rock ricochets off at an angle of α = 67 ◦ with a velocity of v 3 = 6 . 4 m / s. What is the angle of the can’s motion after the collision? Correct answer: 57 . 7764 ◦ (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Basic Concepts: Conservation of Mo- mentum p before = p after . Solution: Horizontally m 1 v 1 + m 2 (0) = m 1 v 3 cos α + m 2 v 4 cos β , so that m 2 v 4 cos β = m 1 v 1- m 1 v 3 cos α (1) = (0 . 6 kg) (8 . 2 m / s)- (0 . 6 kg) (6 . 4 m / s) cos 67 ◦ = 3 . 41959 kg m / s . Vertically m 1 (0) + m 2 v 2 = m 1 v 3 sin α + m 2 v 4 sin β , so that m 2 v 4 sin β = m 2 v 2- m 1 v 3 sin α (2) = (1 . 6 kg) (5 . 6 m / s)- (0 . 6 kg) (6 . 4 m / s) sin67 ◦ = 5 . 42526 kg m / s . Thus tan β = m 2 v 4 sin β m 2 v 4 cos β = (5 . 42526 kg m / s) (3 . 41959 kg m / s) = 1 . 58652 , and β = arctan(1 . 58652) = 57 . 7764 ◦ . Question 3 part 2 of 2 10 points With what speed does the can move imme- diately after the collision? Correct answer: 4 . 00815 m / s (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Using equation (1) above, v 4 = m 1 v 1- m 1 v 3 cos α m 2 cos β = (0 . 6 kg) (8 . 2 m / s) (1 . 6 kg) cos57 . 7764 ◦- (0 . 6 kg) (6 . 4 m / s) cos(67 ◦ ) (1 . 6 kg) cos(57 . 7764 ◦ ) = 4 . 00815 m / s homework 09 – FRENNEA, KYLE – Due: Mar 28 2007, 4:00 am 2 or using equation (2) above, v 4 = m 2 v 2- m 1 v 3 sin α m 2 sin β = (5 . 6 m / s) sin(57 . 7764 ◦ )- (0 . 6 kg) (6 . 4 m / s) sin(67 ◦ ) (1 . 6 kg) sin(57 . 7764 ◦ ) = 4 . 00815 m / s .
