A block with mass m = 3 kg sits on the floor of the elevator, and a triangle with mass 1 kg sits on top of the block. 4 (a) Draw and label the forces on the triangle and the block. y v x v 1kg 3kg 1kg 3kg a = 1m/s2 2 (b) Find the normal force on the triangle due to the block. 2 (c) Find the normal force on the block due to the floor.

A 5 kg block moving at 5 m/s to the right collides with a 1 kg block moving at 2 m/s to the left. After the collision, the 5 kg block is moving at 3 m/s to the right. 3 (a) What is the velocity of the 1 kg block after the collision? before 5kg 5m/s 2m/s 1kg after 5kg 3 (b) After the collision, the kinetic energy of the...
