Lecture 12 2 Example A freight train is being assembled in switching yard. Car 1 has a mass of m 1 =65 × 10 3 kg and moves at a velocity v 01 =0.80 m/s. Car 2 has a mass of m 2 =92 × 10 3 kg and moves at a velocity v 02 =1.3 m/s and couples to Car 1. Neglecting friction, find the common velocity v f of the cars after they become coupled. m 2 m 1 v 02 v 01 initial m 2 m 1 v f final
Lecture 12 3 Example Apply conservation of momentum: P i =m 1 v o1 +m 2 v 02 P f =(m 1 +m 2 )v f (m 1 +m 2 )v f = m 1 v 01 +m 2 v 02 v f = m 1 v 01 + m 2 v 02 m 1 + m 2 = (65 × 10 3 kg )(0.8 m / s ) + (92 × 10 3 kg )(1.3 m / s ) (65 × 10 3 kg + 92 × 10 3 kg ) = 1.1 m / s A fright train is being assembled in switching yard. Car 1 has a mass of m 1 =65 × 10 3 kg and moves at a velocity v 01 =0.80 m/s. Car 2 has a mass of m 2 =92 × 10 3 kg and moves at a velocity v 02 =1.3 m/s and couples to it. Neglecting friction, find the common velocity v f of the cars after they become coupled.

Lecture 12 4 iClicker A railroad car is coasting along a horizontal track with speed v when it runs into and connects with a second identical railroad car, initially at rest. Assuming there is no friction between the cars and the rails, what is the speed of the two coupled cars after the collision?
