Name: Solutions Prelab Questions on Conservation of Linear Momentum 1. Consider a momentum-conserving collision between a normal and a composite puck as will take place in today’s experiment. Suppose that the normal puck’s x-component of momentum is 5 kg m/s after the collision and -5 kg m/s before the collision. What is the x-component of the impulse applied by the composite puck to the normal puck? s m kg P P I initial x final x x / 10 ) 5 ( 5 , , = = = 2. In the first part of today’s experiment, you will investigate the linear momentum of two pucks separately. Please fill in the empty entry of the table

Unformatted text preview: below according to the Law of Conservation of Linear Momentum and explain your answer. x-component of momentum of normal puck x-component of momentum of composite puck Before collision 4 kg m/s Before collision -3 kg m/s After collision -2 kg m/s After collision 3 kg m/s The total momentum of two pucks before the collision should be equal the total momentum after the collision along each component. Hence taking x-components, 4 kg m/s + (-3) kg m/s = -2 kg m/s + p p= 3 kg m/s...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
