Two frictionless rocket sleds are fired from rest toward each other and collide after they both burn out. They stick together after the collision. What is the final velocity of the system? v i = 0 v i = 0 m = 60kg F ?,? = 50N t = 20s (burn time) m = 30kg F ?,? = 25N t = 10s (burn time) What you know Could we use 2nd law? Energy? Momentum? Why not? Don’t know collision forces Why not? Energy not conserved F net t = p Our new friend! What is the final momentum for each before the collision after they both burn out? 1 2 1 2 p 1 = ? 1000kg m/s p f,1 = ? 1 2 1000kg m/s p i,1 = ? p i,2 = 0 p f,2 = ? p 2 = ? 250kg m/s 250kg m/s What object pushes on the rocket? What are the subscripts? F ?,? = N GAS,R v SYS,f = ?
p 1 = ? 1000kg m/s p f,1 = ? 1 2 1000kg m/s p i,1 = 0 p i,2 = 0 p f,2 = ? p 2 = ? 250kg m/s 250kg m/s 1 2 What is the total momentum of the system before they collide? What is the total momentum of the system after they collide? p SYS = p 1 + p 2 = ? p SYS = 750kg m/s The same. No external forces so F SYS,net = 0 so p SYS = 0 What is the final velocity of the system after they collide?

### What students are saying

• 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.
