A 0.246 kg puck, initially at rest on a horizon-tal, frictionless surface, is struck by a 0.169 kg puck moving initially along the x axis with a speed of 2.2 m/s.After the collision, the 0.169 kg puck has a speed of 1.2 m/s at an angle of 38 degrees to the positive x axis. Determine the velocity of the 0.246 kg puck after the collision. Answer in units of m/s.

Two particles, of masses m and 4 m, are mov-ing toward each other along the xi axis with the same initial speeds of 7. 76 m/s. Mass m is traveling to the left, and mass 4 m is trav- eling to the right. They undergo a head-on elastic collision, and each rebounds along the same line as it approached. Find the final speed of the hevier particle.Answer in units of m/

A. 0.025 kg bullet is fired straight up at a falling wooden block that has a mass of 3.0 kg. The bullet has a speed of 740 m/s when it strikes the block. The block originally was dropped from rest from the top of a building and had been falling for a time t when the collision with the bullet occured. As a result of the collision, the block (with the bullet in it) reverses direction, rises, and comes to a momentary halt at the top of the building. Find the time t.

The lead female character in the movie Diamonds Are Forever is standing at the edge of an offshore oil rig. As she fires a gun, she is driven back over the edge and into the sea. Suppose the mass of a bullet is 0.009 kg, and its velocity is +712 m/s. Her mass (including the gun) is 45 kg.

a) What recoil velocity does she acquire in response to a single shot from a stationary position, assuming that no external force keeps her in place?

b) Under the same assumption,what would be her recoil velocity if, instead, she shoots a blank cartridge that ejects a mass of 5.0x 10-4 kg at a velocity of +712 m/s?
