Unformatted text preview: initially stationary. b) If the collision is completely elastic, what is final velocity of each cart in the center- of- mass frame? c) Now go back to the lab frame (in which Cart B is initially stationary.) For an elastic collision, compute the final velocity of each cart, the initial and final kinetic energy of each cart, and the initial and final linear momentum of each cart. d) Repeat b) and c) for the case of a completely inelastic collision. In this case, explain why the sum of the linear momenta for the pair of carts remains constant, whereas the sum of the kinetic energies does not. 3a) A rolling hoop encounters a ramp as shown. If the...
