1. In the diagram
below, a 100-kilogram clown is fired from a 500 kilogram cannon.
If the clown's speed is 15 meters per second after the firing, then the
recoil speed (v) of the cannon is
2. The diagram shows a compressed spring between
two carts initially at rest on a horizontal frictionless surface.
Cart A has a mass of 2
kilograms and cart B has a mass of 1 kilogram. A string holds the carts
Compare the carts inertia
Compare the carts momentum
Compare the force on each car when they
are pushed apart
Compare the impulse on each car when they
are pushed apart
The diagram below shows two carts that were initially at rest on a
horizontal, frictionless surface being pushed apart when a compressed spring
attached to one of the carts is released. Cart A has a mass of 3.0 kilograms
and cart B has a mass of 5.0 kilograms.
If the speed of cart A is 0.33 meter per second after the spring is
released, what is the
approximate speed of cart B after the spring is released?

4. A 1.2-kilogram block and a 1.8-kilogram block are initially
at rest on a frictionless, horizontal surface. When a compressed spring between
the blocks is released, the 1.8-kilogram block moves to the right at 2.0 meters
per second, as shown.
What is the speed of the 1.2-kilogram block after the spring
Momentum is conserved
in a closed system. (Total
Momentum before = Total Momentum _____)
A wooden block is at rest on a horizontal steel
surface. If a 10. Newton force applied parallel to
the surface is required to set the block in motion,
how much force is required to keep the block
moving at constant velocity?
(1) less than 10. N
(2) greater than 10. N
(3) 10. N
If the speed of a moving object is doubled,
which quantity associated with the object must also double?
(1) its momentum (2) its kinetic energy
(3) its acceleration
(4) its gravitational potential energy
