Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Prelab Questions These questions need to be completed before entering the lab. Please show all workings. One cart is pushed towards another stationary cart. They collide, stick, and move together. Prelab 1: Write the equation for the total momentum before the collision. Write the equation for the total momentum after the collision. Prelab 2: Do you expect v f to be greater than v 1 or less than v 1 ? Explain why. Prelab 3: If m 1 = 0.500 ± 0.005 kg, m 2 = 1.000 ± 0.005 kg, v 1 = 0.25 ± 0.01 m/s, and v f = 0.07 ± 0.01 m/s, calculate the initial and final momentum and the impulse. Include uncertainty with each calculation.

Physics 1050 Experiment 5 Part I: Introduction In this experiment, you will test conservation of momentum by determining the momentum before and after a collision between two carts and comparing the values. You will also study the relationship between force and momentum by examining the change in momentum of a cart due to force exerted on it by an elastic band. Impulse, , is defined as the change in momentum of an object. Impulse is a vector quantity. Impulse is also given as the integral of force over time p f = p i r I = " p = p f # p i r I = F d t " . I
