Unit 4: Momentum and Collisions

Problem Set B

 

Problem 7:

A 500-gram physics cart is moving with a speed of 2.4 m/s. John drops a 455.2 gram sand balloon (initially at rest) onto it. Determine the post-collision speed of the physics cart and sand balloon. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

General nformation about solving collision problems is described on the Set B Overview page.

A detailed description of the momentum conservation principle is provided online at The Physics Classroom.

Detailed solutions and discussions of several sample momentum problems are provided online at The Physics Classroom.
