Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points m 1 1 m 2 before after v v v 2 v m 1 m 2 3 4 An m 2 = 1 . 4 kg can of soup is thrown upward with a velocity of v 2 = 5 . 9 m / s. It is immediately struck from the side by an m 1 = 0 . 5 kg rock traveling at v 1 = 8 . 8 m / s. The rock ricochets off at an angle of = 52 with a velocity of v 3 = 6 . 1 m / s. What is the angle of the cans motion after the collision? Correct answer: 66 . 7 . Explanation: Basic Concepts: Conservation of Mo mentum p before = p after . Solution: Horizontally m 1 v 1 + m 2 (0) = m 1 v 3 cos + m 2 v 4 cos , so that m 2 v 4 cos = m 1 v 1 m 1 v 3 cos (1) = (0 . 5 kg) (8 . 8 m / s) (0 . 5 kg) (6 . 1 m / s) cos52 = 2 . 52223 kg m / s . Vertically m 1 (0) + m 2 v 2 = m 1 v 3 sin + m 2 v 4 sin , so that m 2 v 4 sin = m 2 v 2 m 1 v 3 sin (2) = (1 . 4 kg) (5 . 9 m / s) (0 . 5 kg) (6 . 1 m / s) sin52 = 5 . 85657 kg m / s . Thus tan = m 2 v 4 sin m 2 v 4 cos = (5 . 85657 kg m / s) (2 . 52223 kg m / s) = 2 . 32198 , and = arctan(2 . 32198) = 66 . 7 . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points With what speed does the can move immedi ately after the collision? Correct answer: 4 . 55472 m / s. Explanation: Using equation (1) above, v 4 = m 1 v 1 m 1 v 3 cos m 2 cos = (0 . 5 kg) (8 . 8 m / s) (1 . 4 kg) cos66 . 7  (0 . 5 kg) (6 . 1 m / s) cos(52 ) (1 . 4 kg) cos(66 . 7 ) = 4 . 55472 m / s or using equation (2) above, v 4 = m 2 v 2 m 1 v 3 sin m 2 sin = (5 . 9 m / s) sin(66 . 7 ) (0 . 5 kg) (6 . 1 m / s) sin(52 ) (1 . 4 kg) sin(66 . 7 ) = 4 . 55472 m / s . 003 10.0 points Two ice skaters approach each other at right angles. Skater A has a mass of 75 kg and travels in the + x direction at 2 . 58 m / s. Skater B has a mass of 38 . 2 kg and is moving in the + y direction at 1 . 68 m / s. They collide and cling together. Find the final speed of the couple. Correct answer: 1 . 80092 m / s. lim (kl9356) Homework 12 Weathers (17104) 2 Explanation: From conservation of momentum p = 0 m A v A + m B v B = ( m A + m B ) v f Therefore v f = radicalbig ( m A v A ) 2 + ( m B v B ) 2 m A + m B = radicalbig (193 . 5 kg m / s) 2 + (64 . 176 kg m / s) 2 75 kg + 38 . 2 kg = 1 . 80092 m / s 004 10.0 points A uniform flat plate of metal with a circular hole is situated in the reference frame shown in the figure below. 10 8 6 4 2 0 2 4 6 8 10 10 8 6 4 2 2 4 6 8 10 Calculate the xcoordinate of the center of mass x cm of the metal plate....
