Unformatted text preview: with steel pucks and one with magnetic pucks. We hit one puck with the other, and measured the initial velocity of the Frst puck, then the Fnal velocity of both pucks after the collision. The Error Analysis The percent deviation is calculated on the following pages. The Questions The calculations are reported on the following pages for the y components of momentum, and the conservation of kinetic energy. ±or the steel pucks, the fraction of Fnal kinetic energy to initial kinetic energy is 0.66; for magnetic pucks, it is 0.7. The cross-sectional area of the steel pucks is (1/2)*(0.048)*(0.058) + (1/2)*(0.258)*(0.095) = 0.014m^2. The area of the magnetic pucks is (1/2)*(0.194)*(0.12) + (1/2)*(0.17)*(0.15) = 0.025m^2. The area for the magnetic pucks is larger than the area for the steel pucks....
