2. 2A Two bodies have undergone an elastic one-dimensional collision along the x -axis. The figure shows the position vs time for those bodies and for the center of mass. P x t S U Q R T Which segments correspond to the motion of the center of mass ANSWER ___ S and R ______ If we assume that the mass of the particles are equal, indicate the segments corresponding to the motion of the particle that was moving faster before the collision. ANSWER __ U and T _______ 2B The figure below shows groups of identical particles that move parallel to either the x-axis or the y-axis and at identical speeds. Rank the groups according to the speed of the center of mass, greatest first . P S Y X Y X Y X Y X U T ANSWER __ T,U,P,S _______

4. 4A A ball of mass m = 0.1 Kg approaches a wall with a speed of 2 m/s. The incidence direction makes 30 degrees with the vertical direction as shown in the figure. After bouncing from the wall the ball also has a speed of 2 m/s. The change of the LINEAR MOMENTUM of the particle is: ANSWER: P = - 0.2 Kg m/s + 0 j i 2 m/s m = 0.1 Kg 2 m/s 30 30 i j 4B The figure shows three particles of the same mass and the same constant speed. The arrows I the figure indicate the corresponding velocity vectors.
