Unformatted text preview: Initial velocity of mass 1 Final velocity of mass 1 Initial velocity of mass 2 Final velocity of mass 2 Ratio m1/m2 1 0 m/s-10.36m/s-0.25m/s-0.16m/s 0.009 2 0m/s-0.55m/s-0.28m/s 0m/s 0.5 3 0m/s-0.12m/s-0.27m/s 0.37m/s 5.3 Conclusion: By our experiment we can conclude that the greater the m1/m2 ratio is present in the collision the greater is the possibility of objects to move in opposite directions after collision. In experiment 1 it was seen that both objects went in the same direction thus their m1/m2 ratio was very small close to a 0.009. While in the case when one object comes to rest and other moves the ratio was small but not too small; it was 0.5. But in case of moving in opposite direction the ratio was greater than 1 and large; it was 5.3. This experiment shows us that the ratio of mass can help judge the movement of the two bodies after collision....
