112 Part 1: Predict the impulse Minimize the LoggerPro window — we are not going to use the sensor yet. Now measure the distance the cart “recoils” back up the ramp after it collides with the force sensor. Release the cart from its starting point. The cart should roll down, collide with the force sensor, bounce off and roll back up the ramp. Watch carefully and note where it comes momentarily to rest (i.e. the measure the maximum distance it recoils from the force sensor). Make three trial runs releasing the cart from the same starting point and neatly record your results in a table. Using the measured recoil distance, calculate the recoil velocity of the cart just after the collision (ignoring friction). This is the final velocity; calculate its value for each trial. Draw a series of three pictures showing the cart and sensor just before, during, and just after they collide Using the initial and final velocities, determine the change in the cart's momentum for each trial. Be careful to get all your signs correct.
