In the experiment you will analyze several 1-D collisions to see whether momentum and/or kinetic energy are conserved. We'll analyze three simulated collisions here using the same methods. Definitions: momentum p mv. Note that momentum is a vector. Take "to the right" as the positive direction. impulse I- Ap Impulse is the change in momentum. Click on this link: home.html to access the simulation. Click "Continue" after reading the brief instructions page. (We will NOT use the friction button.) (1) Start with an elastic collision. Adjust the orange mass to 1 kg, and the blue mass to 3 kg. Make Orange's initial velocity 2 m/s, and Blue's initial velocity 0 m/s. Run the simulation and stop it after the carts collide. Record the final velocities (pay attention to the +/- signs) in the table. (2) Reset the simulation and run it again as an inelastic collision. Record the final velocities in the table (3) Reset the collision. Change it back to elastic, but this time let Blue have an initial velocity of-1 m/s. Run the simulation and

    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.
