8. Question
A light, ideal spring with a spring constant k = 100 N/m and uncompressed length L = 0.30 m is mounted to the fixed end of a frictionless plane inclined at an angle θ = 30°. Then a mass M 0.300 kg is affixed to the end of the spring and allowed to slowly slide down the plane until it is resting in an equilibrium position. Now, at a distance d = 0.30 m above x0, a second mass m = 0.200 kg is now placed, and released so that it slides down the ramp to collide with mass M as shown in the figure below. Calculate the speed of m just before it strikes mass M.

9. Question
A light, ideal spring with a spring constant k = 100 N/m and uncompressed length L = 0.30 m is mounted to the fixed end of a frictionless plane inclined at an angle θ = 30°. Then a mass M 0.300 kg is affixed to the end of the spring and allowed to slowly slide down the plane until it is resting in an equilibrium position. Now, at a distance d = 0.30 m above x0, a second mass m = 0.200 kg is now placed, and released so that it slides down the ramp to collide with mass M as shown in the figure below.Determine the speed of mass M and m just after they stick together in a perfectly inelastic collision.

10. Question
A 3.0 kg steel ball strikes a wall with a speed of 10 at an angle of 60° with the surface. It bounces off with the same speed and angle, as shown in the figure below. If the ball is in contact with the wall for 0.20 s, what is the average force exerted on the wall by the ball?

Question 11 of 19
11. Question
An air track glider of mass M is built, consisting of two smaller connected gliders with a small explosive charge located between them. The glider is traveling along a frictionless rail at 2 m/s to the right when the charge is detonated, causing the smaller glider with mass M, to move off to the right at 5 m/s. What is the final velocity of the second small glider?

Question 14 of 19
14. Question
A 500gram cart rolls with negligible friction along a straight flat track until it collides with a 750gram cart that was initially at rest. Positiontime data for the 500gram cart before it hits the other cart is recorded in the data table below. At time t = 2 seconds, the two carts collide in a perfectly inelastic collision. Calculate the final velocity of the 500gram cart after this collision.
