Today: Physics of collisions and explosions Rotational motion Totally inelastic collision: p conserved two colliding objects stick together; conservation of momentum: m1v1 + m2v2 = (m1+m2)vf r r r m1v1i + m2v 2i Big Fish (4kg) in motion (v = 5m/s) vf = catches Little Fish (1 kg) m1 + m2 If before the collision only one 4/5 Little Fish (1kg) in motion (v = 5m/s) object (m2) is in is caught by Big Fish (4kg) motion: r m2 r v 2i vf = m1 + m2

potential energy (chemical or nuclear) is released leading to increase in Kinetic energy of the fragments. Like collisions, explosions will also conserve momentum (as long as we define our system properly). Assume we have a bomb sitting on a table and then it explodes into pieces. What is the final momentum of the system? The final momentum of the system is zero. (or three). The harder cases are collisions in two dimensions Just remember that the motions in perpendicular If for external forces, Apply conservation of momentum separately to each direction. Fx = 0 and Fy = 0, then

The two collide such that they finally travel at 50.0o with respect to one another, as shown in the figure. Find the final velocities of both balls.
vi 30 20 Solution First, you must define a coordinate system. Let's say that the original motion of the golf ball is in the positive xdirection. Solution (cont'd) 2D Collisions
Every Let's define the two balls as a single system.
pix = pgx + pBx force between them is now internal. In xdirection the initial momentum of the system is: In ydirection initial momentum of the system is:
piy = pgy + pBy = 0 pix = (5 m s )(0.01kg) + 0 = 0.05kg m s For the final momentum of the vg vgcos system we need to break the final velocities into components. vgsin Solution (con't) system is: 2D Collisions
30 20 In xdirection the final momentum of the
p fx = pgx, f + pBx, f
p fx = mg v gx + mB v Bx p fx = mg v g cos30 + mB v B cos20 Apply momentum conservation:
0.05kg m s = mgv g cos 30 + m B v B cos20 In ydirection the final momentum of the system is:
p fy = pgy, f + pBy, f p fy = mg v gy + mB v By
p fy = mgv g sin 30  mB v B sin20 =0 Apply momentum conservation: piy = p fy Solution (cont'd) 2D Collisions
30 20 0 = mg v g sin 30  mB v B sin20 mg v g sin 30 = mB v B sin20 Let's solve for vg: (0.5kg) sin20 mB sin20 vg = vB = 34.2v B vg = vB (0.01kg) sin 30 m sin30
g Substitute this into the relation for xdirection:
0.05kg m s = m gv g cos 30 + mB v B cos20
0.05kg m s = (0.01kg)( 34.2v B ) cos30 + (0.5kg)v B cos20 0.05kg m s = (0.296)v B + (0.470)v B Answer 2D Collisions
0.05kg m s = (0.766)v B
0.05kg m s = 0.0653m s vB = (0.766) Putting this back into the ydirection results:
v g = 34.2v B
v g = 34.2(0.0653m s ) = 2.23m s Clicker Question

f  i For ease, we will deal with an idealized model of a rigid body  one whose parts remain in fixed positions relative to one another. Each point on the rigid body undergoes the same angular displacement. Rotational Variables The convention for angular displacement is that a clockwise displacement is negative and a counterclockwise displacement is positive. Warning: can be greater than 2 rad. Angular speed

avg Average angular speed is the angular displacement

f tf r
f i When angular speed is changing, we define instantaneous angular speed: ti d = lim = t 0 t dt 0 x Units of angular speed are [rad/s]. Angular speed is positive if Angular speed is negative if is increasing (ccw). is decreasing (cw). Angular acceleration

avg =  i = t t f  ti
f When angular acceleration is changing (as when a CD starts up after you turn on the power), we define instantaneous angular acceleration: d = lim = t 0 t dt Units of angular acceleration are [rad/s2]. Angular variables correspond to linear variables:
