Two blocks are free to slide along a frictionless wooden track ABC as shown in Figure (see attachment). A block of mass m1 = 4.95 kg is released from A. Protruding from its front end is the north pole of a strong magnet, repelling the north pole of an identical magnet embedded in the back end of the block of mass m2 = 9.00 kg, initially at rest. The two blocks never touch. Calculate the maximum height to which m1 rises after the elastic collision.

Two air-track gliders of equal mass are initially moving in the same direction alone a straight line. The rearmost glider has an initial speed of 3.0 m/s and the forward glider has a speed of 2.0 m/s. if the collision is elastic, what are the speeds and directions of the gliders after the collision?

Hi. Can someone please show me how to do the following problem:
"An 11.2 g object moving to the right at 21.3 cm/s makes an elastic head-on collision with a 17.3 g object moving in the opposite direction at 31.5 cm/s. What is the velocity of the 11.2 g object after the collision? (positive is to the right)"
Thank you!

Two glass marbles moving along a straight line toward each other undergo an elasticcollision. The speed of one marble is 2v and its mass is m; the speed of the other marble is v and its mass is 2m. What are the speeds and directions of the marbles after the collision?

A 1055 kg van, stopped at a traffic light, is hit directly in the rear by a 770 kg car traveling with a velocity of +2.30 m/s. Assume that the transmission of the van is in neutral, the brakes are not being applied, and the collision is elastic. What is the final velocity of each vehicle?

1) A 3 kg bowling ball traveling with a velocity of 3 m/s collides head-on with another bowling ball of the same mass traveling with a velocity of -2 m/s. If the collision is perfectly elastic, the velocities of the bowling balls after the collision is:
a. 2 m/s an -3 m/s
b. 5 m/s and 0
c/-2 m/s and -3 m m/s/s
d. -2m/s and

A 0.343 kg croquet ball makes an elastic head-on collision with a second ball initially at rest. The second ball moves off with one half the original speed of the first ball. 1) What is the mass of the second ball? And 2) what fraction of the original kinetic energy gets transferred to the second ball?

1) A 10.0 g moving to the right at 20.0 cm/s makes and elastic head on collision with a 15.0 g object moving in the opposite direction at 30.0 cm/s. Find the velocity of each object after collision.
2) a 90 kg fullback moving east with a speed of 5 m/s is tackled by a 95 kg opponent running north at
3.0 m/s. If the collis

An air-track glider with an initial speed of 4.0 m/s has a head-on collision with another glider at rest that is three times as massive. What are the final speed and directions of the gliders if the collision is elastic? I believe the answer is V1 = -2.0 m/s and V2 = +2.0 m/s. I need to see each step and formula to solve this qu

A block of mass m = 2.32 kg slides down an alpha = 29.2° incline which is h = 3.56 m high. At the bottom, it strikes a block of mass M = 7.06 kg which is at rest on a horizontal surface (see drawing in attached Word document). If the collision is elastic, and friction can be ignored, determine the velocity of the smaller block

A package of mass m is released from rest at a warehouse loading dock and slides down a 3.0-m high frictionless chute to a waiting truck. Unfortunately, the truck driver went on a break without having removed the previous package, of mass 2m, from the bottom of the chute.
A. Suppose the packages stick together. What is their
