1-D Elastic Collisions
The following carts are moving on a level frictionless surface
and when they collide they collide through perfectly elastic
For the following conditions find the unknown variables.
MA (kg) MB (kg)
VA (m/s) VB
Vector Analysis of Uniform Circular Motion
Level the table.
Set the timer at 100 ms.
Place the paper over the post on the suction cup, try to make the hole as small as
possible as this will be the center of your motion and reference poi
Introduction: In studies of projectile motion students often question the reality of whether or not
horizontal and vertical motions are independent of each other. Students should recall
the demonstration of the two balls, one drop
Kinematics Problems 1
Acceleration Due to Gravity
Ignore air resistance unless otherwise stated. Use a = g = 10 m/s 2.
1. How long will take for a bomb to hit the ground if it is released
from 500 m above the ground?
2. A ball is thrown upwards at
Kinematics Problems 2
1. A car accelerates from rest at 2.5 m/s2 [ S]. After the car
travels 40.0 m what is the cars velocity?
2. A motorcycle travelling at 50.0 km/h pulls out to pass a car.
The bike reaches a speed of 90.0 km/h and 5.0 s later p
Projectile Motion 3
Introduction: The initial velocity of a projectile can be broken into a component in the y-direction and a
component in the x-direction. On the other hand if the two components are known then
the initial velocity can be found b
Writing Lab Reports
A complete should contain the following:
Hypothesis ( when possible)
Title correct title and reference for the lab
Vector Problems 1
1. A bus is travelling along a road at 60.0 km/h [W]. Inside a passenger
is walking up the aisle to talk to the driver. If the passenger walks at
her normal speed of 5.0 km/h what is her velocity:
a) Relative to the other passeng
You have probably watched a ball roll off a table and strike the floor. What determines where it
will land? Could you predict where it will land? In this experiment, you will roll a ball down a
ramp and determine the balls veloci
