(a) [4pt] A 0.280-kg ball makes an elastic head-on collision with a second ball initially at rest.
The second ball moves off with one fourth the original speed of the first ball. The mass of the
second ball is
[A] 0.280 kg [B] 0.560 kg [C] 0.840 kg [D] 1.12 kg If primes denote the final velocities, we are given that
the relative speeds are maintained, so [E] 1.96 kg For an elastic collision, Therefore, Momentum conservation implies that Therefore, which implies that Then kg, so the answer is E. (b) [4pt] A cubic block of cherry wood with sides of 10.0 cm has a density of 800 kg/m3. The
cubic block flo...
