2) A 5-gram marble moving at 5 m/s [N] collides with a 2-gram marble moving at 3 m/s [N]. a) If the final velocity of the 2- gram marble is 7 m/s [N]…. i. What is the final velocity of the 5-gram marble? ii. How much heat is produced in this collision? b) If the marbles collide and stick together…. i. What is their mutual final velocity? ii. How much heat is produced by their collision? Please don’t round off your answer. 5 2
