(c) The kinetic energy gained by the alpha particle is The energy lost by the proton is gained by the alpha particle. The total kinetic energy of the system is constant and the collision is elastic. 8.34. Set Up: Let be to the right. All velocities are x components but we will not write the x subscript. Use conservation of momentum and the relative velocity addition equation and Solve: From conservation of momentum, From the relative velocity equation, Combining these two equations gives and Then 8.35. Set Up: Let A be the bowling ball and let B be the table-tennis ball. Solve: The bowling ball continues to move at speed V in the same direction and the table-tennis ball moves in that same direction with speed 2 V . Reflect: The table-tennis ball gains some kinetic energy so the bowling ball must slow down slightly, but not much because of its large mass. 8.36. Set Up: Let one object be traveling in the direction; then the other is initially traveling in the direction, so and The initial momentum of the system is zero.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
