1.(5 points) A block of mass m is initially traveling with a velocity v 0 up an inclined plane set at an angle θ to the horizontal. The coefficient of friction is equal to μ and gravity is acting. What distance, d, will the block travel along the slope before it stops? 2. (5 points) Two objects are traveling on a collision course as shown, moving in a horizontal direction. The picture is drawn in thecenter-of-mass frame. The velocity of the first object measured relative to the center of mass is v 1 . Whatis the velocity v 2 of the second object relative to the center of mass? Write this velocity in terms of m 1 , m 2 , and v 1. Specify the magnitude and direction. Explain.
