Box 1 B. Box 2 C. Same c Two balls of equal mass are thrown horizontally with the same initial velocity. They hit identical stationary boxes resting on a frictionless horizontal surface. c The ball hitting box 1 bounces elastically back, while the ball hitting box 2 sticks. x In which case does the box ends up moving fastest ? x No external force then, vectorially, COM 1 2 Physics 207: Lecture 12, Pg 4 Lecture 12, Exercise 1 Momentum Conservation c Which box ends up moving fastest ? c Examine the change in the momentum of the ball. In the case of box 1 the balls momentum changes sign and so its net change is largest. Since momentum is conserved the box must have the largest velocity to compensate.
