The bead collides elas- tically with a larger 0.628 kg bead initially at rest. After the collision, the smaller bead moves to the left with a velocity of 0.66 cm/s. . 376 kg 4 . 08 cm / s . 628 kg Find the distance the larger bead moves along the wire in the first 5.5 s following the collision. Correct answer: 15 . 6088 cm (tolerance ± 1 %). Explanation: Basic Concepts: m 1 vectorv 1 ,i = m 1 vectorv 1 ,f + m 2 vectorv 2 ,f since v 2 ,i = 0 m/s. Δ x = v Δ t Given: Let to the right be positive: m 1 = 0 . 376 kg v 1 ,i = +4 . 08 cm / s m 2 = 0 . 628 kg v 1 ,f = − . 66 cm / s t = 5 . 5 s Solution: v 2 ,f = m 1 v 1 ,i − m 1 v 1 ,f m 2 = (0 . 376 kg)(4 . 08 cm / s) . 628 kg − (0 . 376 kg)( − . 66 cm / s) . 628 kg = 2 . 83796 cm / s to the right. Thus Δ x = (2 . 83796 cm / s)(5 . 5 s) = 15 . 6088 cm Question 2, chap 11, sect 2. part 1 of 2 10 points Consider the collision of two identical par- ticles, where the initial velocity of particle 1 is v 1 and particle 2 is initially at rest. 1 2 v 1 After an elastic head-on collision, the final velocity of particle 2 v ′ 2 is given by 1. v ′ 2 = 2 v 1 2. v ′ 2 = 4 v 1 3 3. v ′ 2 = 0 4. v ′ 2 = v 1 correct 5. v ′ 2 = v 1 3 6. v ′ 2 = 2 v 1 3 7. v ′ 2 = v 1 4 8. v ′ 2 = 3 v 1 4 9. v ′ 2 = 5 v 1 3 10. v ′ 2 = v 1 2 Explanation: For the final velocity of particle 2 after an elastic collision, we have v ′ 2 = 2 v cm − v 2 . For the present case, v cm = m 1 v 1 + m 2 v 2 m 1 + m 2 = v 1 2 . So v ′ 2 = 2 parenleftBig v 1 2 parenrightBig − 0 = v 1 . homework 22 – HETTIGER, CHRISTOF – Due: Mar 22 2008, 4:00 am 2 Question 3, chap 11, sect 2. part 2 of 2 10 points Next replace particle 1 by a sledge hammer with mass m 1 = 10 kg, particle 2 by a golf ball with a mass m 2 = 10 g. Consider the elastic head-on collision between the hammer and the ball....
