Unformatted text preview: First study the elastic collision of equal mass carts with one cart initially at rest. You should use the same LoggerPro program as last time (Exp. 9). Neatly record the raw data on all quantities that you need, viz., the masses of the carts and the velocities of both carts just before and just after the collision. (The recorded values of the velocities should be approximate averages of the fluctuating readings from the motion sensor.) Then calculate momenta and kinetic energies. Write down the expected conservation laws for momentum and kinetic energy. Conclude how well your carts satisify these equations. Then repeat the experiment with one or two 0.5 kg bars on the cart initially at rest. Physics 123 – Minilab 10 Names: _______________________ _______________________ Part 1. Equal mass carts.
