Consider the deflection of a falling ball by a 45° incline. The ball bounces off horizontally. Assume that this is an elastic collision. Determine the impulse delivered by the incline onto the ball: AB C D Direction cdc d D pp i p i Ï 2 w p i Ï 2 w p i Hint: The impulse vector imparted on the ball by the plane is defined by D p 5 p f 2 p i . Sketch the vector diagram first. Explanation: From the sketch, we see that Answer 5 C. p i p i 94 PhysiQuiz 1. Impulse Delivered by the Incline p f p i Δ p p f p i p

We have two balls with masses m 1 5 m 2 5 m . The ball m 1 with a speed v 1 5 v 0 is approaching m 2 , which is at rest ( v 2 5 0). They undergo a head-on elastic collision. Denote the final velocities as v 1 9 and v 2 9 . Identify the correct pair of v 1 9 and v 2 9 values: AB C D v 1 9 v 0 /2 v 0 /3 0 2 v 0 /2 v 2 9 v 0 /2 2 v 0 /3 v 0 3 v 0 /2 Hint: For an elastic collision, the following two conditions must be satisfied: Conservation of momentum: p i 5 m v 1 1 m v 2 5 p f 5 m v 1 91 m v 2 9 . Conservation of kinetic energy: K f 5 K i . Explanation: Notice that for all choices (in the x direction), p i 5 mv 1 1 mv 2 5 mv 0 and p f 5 mv 1 mv 2 95 mv 0 . In other words, momentum is conserved for all four cases. Next check the condition K f 5 K i . The initial kinetic energy is given by K i 5 mv 0 2 /2. We need to work out K f for all four choices. For instance, for the first choice A, K f 5 m ( v 0 /2) 2 /2 1 m ( v 0 /2) 2 /2 5 mv 0 2 /4. Do the same for the other three choices. All except C fail this condition. So Answer 5 C.
