Object 1, which has mass m 1 , is initially in motion, and collides head-on with object 2, which has mass m 2 , and is initially at rest. Which of the following statements about the collision are true? [_] [_] If m 2 >> m 1 , then | 1 | > | 2 | [x] [x] If m 2 >> m 1 , then the final speed of object 1 is greater than the final speed of object 2. [x] [x] 1,initial = 1,final + 2,final [_] [_] If m 1 >> m 2 , then the final speed of object 2 is less than the initial speed of object 1. [x] [x] | 1,final | < | 1,initial | 2. 5/5 points | 2/4 submissions A professional pitcher throws a baseball of mass 0.155 kg at a speed of 34 m/s. The ball bounces off a wall embedded in the Earth, with very little loss of kinetic energy. This is essentially a head-on elastic collision.
