The initial speed of block A is twice as that of block B. You now apply the same constant force to both blocks for exactly one second. F air track A 2v F air track B v The change in momentum of block A is: A) Twice the change in momentum of block B B) The same as the change in momentum of block B C) Zero. D) Half the change in momentum of block B Physics 211 Lecture 13, Slide 12 Physics P Fave t Act Two boxes, one having twice the mass of the other, are initially at rest on a horizontal frictionless surface. A force F acts on the lighter box and a force 2F acts on the heavier box. Both forces act for exactly one second. Which box ends up with the biggest momentum? A) Bigger box F B) Smaller box M 2F C) same 2M Physics 211 Lecture 13, Slide 13 Preflight A constant force acts for a time t on a block that is initially at rest on a frictionless surface, resulting in a final velocity V. Suppose the experiment is repeated on a block with twice the mass using a force that’s half as big. For how long would the force have to act to result in the same final velocity? F A) Four times as long. B) Twice as long. C) The same length. D) Half as long. E) A quarter as long. Lets try it again !
