8.81. Set Up: For an elastic collision with object B initially at rest, and A is the alpha particle and B is the gold nucleus. Solve: Reflect: In an elastic collision of a light object with a stationary heavy object, the light object bounces back with its speed only slightly reduced. 8.82. Set Up: Take to be upward. Let A be the lower piece and B be the upper piece, so (a) Apply conservation of momentum to the explosion. (b) After the explosion the upper piece is in free-fall with At its maximum height Solve: (a) Explosion: gives so and (b) Motion after explosion: gives 8.83. Set Up: Apply conservation of momentum. Take to be to the right. For (a) the collision is elastic. Let A be the cart that is initially moving to the right. For (b) the two carts stick together and the combined object has final speed Solve: (a) gives and For an elastic collision This gives so and A rebounds with speed and B rebounds with speed (b) gives and Both carts are rest after the collision.

    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.
