5 Page 1 Important notes: * Warning! Improper handling of the collision pucks during the experiment can lead to a severe electrical shock! Your T.A. will make a demonstration of the proper use of the equipment before you can use it. * Do not place the collision pucks directly on the carbon paper. Doing so will lead to tears in the carbon paper. * In this lab you will be required to measure angles. Please bring a protractor to the lab. * For this lab only students should work in groups of three. Each person should work on a particular collision (collision diagram and momentum vector diagram). Once the diagrams are all completed, group members can share their results with each other. However, each student must complete Tables 1 and 2 in their lab booklets and give sample calculations in the lab report. Only one name (the person responsible for the calculations) should be written on each collision diagram. Write your collegue names on your report. 1. Purpose 1) To use the air table to study different types of collision. 2) To verify the conservation of momentum in two dimensions, and determine the loss in kinetic energy. Apparatus: The air table, figure (1), is a flat square sheet of glass about 60 cm by 60 cm. It has three feet for leveling. The pucks are heavy metal discs with a long flexible air supply hose connected at the top. The air passes

    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.
