Physics 102 - Momentum and Collisions 1: A mass moves in a perfect circle at constant speed. Is its linear momentum constant? Explain. 2: A horizontal force F pushes a mass M 1 a distance d along a frictionless horizontal surface. Similarly, a horizontal force F pushes a mass M 2 a distance d along a frictionless horizontal surface. Use M 2 > M 1 . Assume that each mass was initially at rest. a: Which mass has the larger kinetic energy? Explain. Hint: use the Work Energy Theorem. b: Which mass has the velocity with the larger magnitude? Explain. c: Which mass has the linear momentum with the larger magnitude? Explain. 3: A 0 . 5 kg rubber ball bounces o a wall (below left). The speed of the ball is 8 m/s before and after the collision. Use = 50 . a: Determine the impulse given to the ball. In other words, find Δ ~ p . b: If the duration of the collision was 0 . 06 s, determine the average force exerted by the wall on the ball. θ θ M 1 M 2 V 2 V 3 M 1 M 2 V 1 4: An object of mass 2 kg moves east at a speed of 3 m/s. A second object of mass 1 kg moves north at a speed of 8 m/s. Determine the magnitude and direction

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.
