# Question

Consider two string-suspended balls, both with a mass of 0.15 kg. (Similar to the arrangement in Fig. 6.15, but with only two balls.) One ball is pulled back in line with the other so it has a vertical height of 10 cm, and is then released.

(a) What is the speed of the ball just before hitting the stationary one?

(b) If the collision is completely inelastic, to what height do the balls swing?

A cherry bomb explodes into three pieces of equal mass. One piece has an initial velocity of 10 m/s x-bar. Another piece has an initial velocity of 6.0 m/s x-bar – 3.0 m/s y-bar. What is the velocity of the third piece? An explosion of a 10.0-kg bomb releases only two separate pieces. The bomb was initially at rest and a 4.00-kg piece travels westward at immediately after the explosion.

If friction is negligible, what are the speeds of the pucks after the collision? At a county fair, two children ram each other head-on while riding on the bumper cars. Jill and her car, traveling left at 3.50 m/s, have a total mass of 325 kg. Jack and his car, traveling to the right at 2.00 m/s, have a ...A freight car with a mass of 25 000 kg rolls down an inclined track through a vertical distance of 1.5 m.
