This pendulum is released from rest in a horizontal position and when the ball is at its lowest point it strikes a 1.3 kg block sitting

at rest on a shelf. Assume that the collision is perfectly elastic and take the coefficient of friction between the block and shelf to be 0.89.

The acceleration of gravity is 9.81 m/s2. What is the velocity of the block just after impact?

Answer in units of m/s

M1•g•h = m1•v^2/2

v=sqrt(2•g•h) = sqrt(2•9.81•8) = 12.53 m/s.

Law of conservation of linear momentum m1•v1 + 0 = m1•u1 +m2•v2.

Since m1=m2, u2 =12.53 m/s.

Given coefficient of friction is necessary for the second part of this problem which is usually the calculation of the distance of the block motion.

a = k•g,

s = v^2/2a = v^2/2 •k•g =(12.53)^2/2•0.89•9.81 = 9 m
