On a frictionless table, a 3kg block moving 4m/s to the right collides with an 8kg block moving 1.5m/s to the left. If the blocks stick together, what is the final velocity? How much mechanical energy is dissipate in the collision?

  • Physics -

    +x to the right

    initial momentum = 3*4 - 8*1.5 = 0
    so final momentum = 0
    so final velocity = 0

    energy is all gone
    Initial Ke = (1/2)(3)(16) + (1/2)(8)(2.25)

  • Physics -

    Where do I find the answers?????
