17. In a railroad switchyard, a 56ton freight car is se'ntat 7.0 mi/h toward a 31ton car that is moving in the same direction at 2.6 mi/h: ' .'  . (a) What is the speed of the pair after they couple together? (b) What fraction of the initial kinetic energy was lost in the collision? Solution ' I The average impulsive force (from Equations 111 and 2) is Fav = Ap/f),t = (0  mVi)/D.t = (62 kg)x (35 m/3.6 s)/(0.14 s) = 4.31 kN (opposite to the di;rectionof Vi, or upward for most jumps under calm' wind conditions). The magnitude is slightly over seven times the parachutist's weight, or 7.09 mg. _ Solution
! "'_._~,~ (a) If we assume the switchyard track is straight and level, the collision is onedimensional, totally i~elasticl and Equation 114 applies: vf = [(56T){7.0 mi/h) + ~ (31 T)(2.6 mi/h)]/(56 + 31)T = 5.43 mi/h. (b) The Problem ..7. Safety st~ndards call for a 1900kgc~r colliding at J 12 m/s WIth a concrete wall to expenence an _/ ~  average impulsive force not greater than 50 kN.

Frotn Equation 112, if Fav = D.p/ D.t ::; 50 kN, then D.t ~ D.p/50 kN. When the car is brought to rest in a collision with the wall, the magnitude of its momentum change is D.p = 10 mVil = (1900 kg) x (12:mjs), so D.t ~ 0.456 s. (Note: ifthe car had bounced off the wall during the collis, D.p would ;' ion, have been larger, as well as D.t.) / accidentally tosses a ball.at 18 m/s toward the' front of a car moving toward him at 14 m/s. ' What is the speed of the ball after it rebounds elastically from the car? Solution
In a headon elastic collision, the relative velocity of separation is equal to the negative of the relative velocity of approach (see Equation 118). If m2 ~ mi • (a car versus a ball), then v2f Rl V2i = 14 mis, and , VI! = V2! + ~2i  VIi = 14 IIl/s+ 14 m/s ! ('18 m/s) =46 m/s. (We chose positive velocities in • . the direction of the car.) _

If half the kinetic energy of the initially moving object istransferredto the other object, what is the ratio of their masses? Problem 65. A 1400kg car moving at 75 km/h runs into a 1200=kgcar moving in the same direction at 50 kril/h (Fig. 1126). The two cars lock together .' and both drivers immediately slam on their brakes. If the cars come to rest in a distance of 18 m, what is the coefficient of friction? Solution
If one sets V2i = 0 in Equations 1l9a and b, one _'_  obtains vlf = (ml  m2)vli/(ml + m2) and v2f = 2mlvli/(ml + m2)' (This describes a one..dimensional , elastic collision between two objects, one initially at rest.) If halfthe kinetic energy of the first object is transferred to the second, ~Kli = ~mlv~i = K2! = !m2[2mlvl'i/(ml + m2)j2, or 8mlm2 = (ml + m2)2 . .The resulting quadratic equation, m~  6mlm2 + m~ = 0, has two solutions, ml = (3 :f: y'8)m2 = 5.83m2 or (5.83)lm2' Since the quadratic is symmetric in ml and m2, one solution equals the other with nil and m2 interchanged. Thus, one object • is 5.83 times more massive than the other. ...// FIGURE 1126 Problem 65. '..__......:.._Problem Solution

The speed of the larger bob before the collision is (froriJ. onservation of energy) Vii = J2g£(1  cos 15°) c (see Example 86), while for the smaller bob, V2i = O. After the collision, the smaller bob will reach a I maximum angle given by (again from conservation of , energy) v~! = 2g£(1  cos O2), where V2! can be found from Equation 119b. Therefore,
