Physics 1A Winter 2008 Problem Set #6 1) Two asteroids of equal mass in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter collide with a glancing blow. Asteroid A, which was initially traveling at 40.0 m/s, is deflected 30.0 deg from its original direction, while asteroid B travels at 45.0 deg to the original direction of A(see figure). Find the speed of asteroid A after the collision. Find the speed of asteroid B after the collision. What fraction of the original kinetic energy of asteroid A dissipates during this collision? 2) A 0.150-kg frame, when suspended from a coil spring, stretches the spring 0.050 m. A 0.200-kg lump of putty is dropped from rest onto the frame from a height of 30.0 cm. Find the maximum distance the frame moves downward from its initial position. 3) Suppose you hold a small ball in contact with, and directly over, the center of a large ball. If you then drop the small ball a short time after dropping the large ball, the small ball rebounds with surprising speed. To show the extreme case, ignore air resistance and suppose the large ball makes an elastic collision with the floor
