It collides elastically with block 2, of mass , which is at rest ( ). After the collision, block 1 moves with speed , while block 2 moves with speed . Assume that , so that after the collision, the two objects move off in the direction of the first object before the collision. Part A This collision is elastic. What quantities, if any, are conserved in this collision? Hint A.1 What to think about Hint not displayed ANSWER: kinetic energy only momentum only kinetic energy and momentum Part B What is the final speed of block 1?...
