Name: ______________________________ Lab Instructor: ______________________________ Lab Unit # 5 Pre-lab Questions: Collisions I – “Bounce” Collisions 1. (a) In a head-on (1-D) elastic collision between two identical pucks on a frictionless surface, where puck # 1 (“projectile”) is initially moving in the x + direction at speed v towards puck # 2 at rest (“target”), what should be the velocities v and v of the pucks after colliding? 0 x f 1 x f 2 = x f 1 v ____________________. = x f 2 v ____________________. Please include diagrams showing Before and After the collision: B e f o r e : A f t e r : (b) What should be the velocities of the center of mass (CM) of the two pucks before (i) and after (f) the collision (in terms of v )? 0 = x CMi v ____________________. = x CMf
