A package of mass  is released from rest at a warehouse loading dock and slides down a 3.0-m-high frictionless chute to a waiting truck. Unfortunately, the truck driver went on a break without having removed the previous package, of mass 2  , from the bottom of the chute.    
Part A
Suppose the packages stick together. What is their common speed after the collision?
Part B
Suppose the collision between the packages is elastic. To what height does the package of mass  rebound?
