Howell AP Physics B Lab Name_Anirudh Sundararaghavan __ Elastic Collisions Scenario #1:       Elastic collision between Carts of Equal Mass Applet Settings: Alpha Setting Red Mass Red Velocity Blue Mass Blue Velocity 1.0 1 +100 m/s 1 0.0 m/s Calculate the following initial values before running the simulation: Initial Momentum - Red Initial Momentum - Blue Total Initial Momentum 100 kg . m/s 0 kg . m/s 100 0kg . m/s Red Cart Velocity = 0 m/s  Blue Cart Velocity = +100 m/s (Note: Indicate the cart's direction with a + or - sign.) Calculate the following final values after the collision: Final Momentum - Red Final Momentum - Blue Total Final Momentum 0 kg . m/s 100 kg . m/s 100 kg . m/s What is the relationship between the initial and final momentums? The total final and initial momentums are both equal indicating the momentum was conserved in the collision.  This is also shown by the collision being elastic.  Describe the motion of the red and blue cart before and after the collision? Before collision, the blue cart was still at o m/s, but after the collision, the blue cart was moving with a velocity  of 100 m/s. Before the collision, the red cart was moving at 100 m/s, but after the collision, the red cart was still at 0 m/s.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
