12.82. Model: The clay balls are particles and undergo a totally inelastic collision. Linear momentum is conserved during the collision. Visualize: Solve: (a) The angle is measured counterclockwise from r G to . v G From geometry, () 1 1 180 tan 1 225 , β + and 1 2 1 tan 26.6 . 2 ⎛⎞ == ° ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ So ( ) 12 1 1 1 1 2 2 2 2 2 sin sin 0.015 kg 2 m 2 m/s sin 225 0.025 kg 5 m 2.0 m/s sin 26.6 0.020 kg m /s.
