Hi! Thank you very much-- I know this is a 2dimensional inelastic collision but i'm not sure how to solve-- "The mass of a blue block is 20% greater than the mass of the green block. Before colliding, the blocks approach each ther with momenta of equal

A basketball player makes a jump shot. The 0.700-kg ball is released at a height of 2.00 m above the floor with a speed of 7.70 m/s. The ball goes through the net 3.00 m above the floor at a speed of 3.10 m/s. What is the work done on the ball by air

A pole-vaulter approaches the takeoff point at a speed of 9.50 m/s. Assuming that only this speed determines the height to which he can rise, find the maximum height at which the vaulter can clear the bar.
