6 pts a) Since m2 m1 , the bullet will leave with the same relative speed with which it came in.
V1 = V1
b) The speed of the bullet after the collision is now V1 + V2 relative to m2 . Therefore, the
speed of m1 is V1 = V1 + 2V2
11
c) Momentum conservation gives the speed of both masses after the collision, V = mm+Vm2 .
