EGM 3400 and 3401 (circle one) NAME:_______________________ Spring 2007 Quiz 5 Open book/Closed notes – Time limit = 25 minutes The block A is released from rest 3 m above the block B. Block A has a mass of 1 kg and block B has a mass of 4 kg. Block B is supported by two linear springs, each of which has a spring constant of 500 N/m. When block A strikes block B it does not rebound (blocks A and B move together after the collision) and the time of the collision is very short. Find the velocity of the blocks after the collision and the energy lost in the collision process. Ignore air resistance. Solution: Use Conservation of Mechanical Energy to find the
