PHY 2053, Section 3794, Fall 2009, Quiz 8 1. A 3,000-kg car moving East at 15 m/s collides with a 2,000-kg car moving North. fter the collision, the cars stick together and move as a unit, at an angle of 30 North of East. a) What is the speed of the cars after the collision? East-momentum: m 1 × v 1 = ( m 1 + m 2 ) × v f cos( θ ). Thus: v f = m 1 × v 1 ( m 1 + m 2 ) × v f cos( θ ) = 3000 × 15 (3000 + 2000) × 0 . 8660 = 10 . 4 m / s . b) What is the speed of the 2000-kg car before the collision? North-momentum: m 2 × v 2 = ( m 1 + m 2 ) × v f sin( θ ). Thus: v 2 = ( m 1 + m 2 ) × v f sin( θ ) m 2 = (3000 + 2000) × 10 . 4 × 0 . 5 2000 = 13 . 0 m / s . Check: Should have m 2 × v 2 = m 1 × v 1 tan(30 ) by trigonometry, using mementa as vectors. 2. A centrifuge in a medical laboratory rotates at 5400 rev/min. When switched off, it rotates

So: = 2 2 = ( 2 5400 60 ) 2 1 2 2 75 . = 108 = 339 . 3 rad / s 2 . b) How long does it take to come to rest? Use: = + 2 t = t = 2 + = 2 2 75 . ( 60 2 5400 ) = 1 . 67 sec ....
