An ice hockey puck slides along the ice at 12 m/s. A hockey stick delivers an impulse of 4.0 kg*m/s causing the puck to move off in the opposite direction with the same speed. What is the mass of the puck? I tried all sorts of ways to set this up and I just cant seem to get it...
The world's fastest humans can reach speeds of about 11 m/s. In order to increase his gravitational potential energy by an amount equal to his kinetic energy at full speed, how high would such a sprinter need to climb? How do you set this up?
Dont get it?
I tried plugging the number in and it didnt work...where are the numbers supposed to be placed in the first equation?
A 40 g marble moving at 2.3 m/s strikes a 29 g marble at rest. Assume the collision is perfectly elastic and the marbles collide head-on. What is the speed of the first marble immediately after the collision? What is the speed of the second marble immediately after the collisi...
A small, 200 g cart is moving at 1.50 m/s on an air track when it collides with a larger, 2.00 kg cart at rest. After the collision, the small cart recoils at 0.890 m/s. Q: What is the speed of the large cart after the collision? How do you set this up? Would it be like (mass ...
