Lab 8: Collisions in Two Dimensions Monday 6:20-8:10pm Abstract In this lab, a nearly elastic collision and perfectly inelastic collision were done. Momentums in both collision are conserved, because the percentage changes of momentums are -7.67% and -11.5% only, which is not very big. In the inelastic collision, the results of energy are wrong, because the final energy is bigger than the initial energy.

Objective The objective of this lab is to show that collision in two dimensions, as in one, the total linear momentum of the system of colliding bodies will be conserved in all cases. Procedure In this lab, there were two types of collisions. They are inelastic and elastic collisions. Two disks with the same mass and an air table were used for this experiment. A program called Logger Pro v3.7 is used to record the video of the collision and the measurement of this lab. Result Nearly elastic collision: Total momentum before collision in x-direction = 0.0269kg*m/s Total momentum before collision in y-direction = 0.0225kg*m/s Total momentum before collision = 0.0351±0.0048 kg*m/s Total momentum after collision in x-direction = 0.0248kg*m/s

    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.
