Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Amy on Sunday, July 14, 2013 at 9:55pm.

Two manned satellites approaching one another at a relative speed of 0.200 m/s intend to dock. The first has a mass of 4.50 multiplied by 103 kg, and the second a mass of 7.50 multiplied by 103 kg. Assume that the positive direction is directed from the second satellite towards the first satellite.

(a) Calculate the final velocity after docking, in the frame of reference in which the first satellite was originally at rest.

(b) What is the loss of kinetic energy in this inelastic collision?
(c) Repeat both parts, in the frame of reference in which the second satellite was originally at rest.
Find the final velocity and loss of kinetic energy
