Question

21. Make sure carts are facing so that Velcro strips can stick together when they collide. Keep an extra 250g of mass on the cart 2 which starts at rest. Change sign on velocity center. Practice giving an initial velocity to cart 1 while cart 2 starts at rest so that after the collision both carts move as a combined object with mass m1 m2. What is the type of collision now you are practicing with two carts

1. Answer:

his type of shock is called inelastic

Explanation:

This exercise is for vehicle crashes, which corresponds to exercise is momentum conservation.

We must begin by defining a system formed by the two cars so that the forces during the crash have been intense and the moment is preserved.

Looking for the moments

initial. Before the crash

p₀ = m₁ v₁₀

final. After the crash

p_f = (m₁ + m₂) v

the conservation of the moment is written

p₀ = p_f

m₁ v₁₀ = (m₁ + m₂) v

This type of shock is called inelastic and has the characteristics that the kinetic energy is not conserved.
