Explanation: First let’s calculate the total momentum of both the cars, before and after the collision.
= 1500 × 25
= 37500 kg.m/s
= 1000 × 15
= 15000 kg.m/s
= 37500 + 15000
= 52500 kg.m/s ……….(1)
(b) After collision, the velocity of car A is 20 m/s.
Momentum of car A = 1500 × 20
(after collision) = 30000 kg.m/s
After collision, suppose the velocity of car B is v m/s
Momentum of car B = 1000 × v
(after collision) = 1000 v kg.m/s
Total momentum of car A and car B
= 30000 + 1000 v ……….(2)
According to the law of conservation of momentum :
52500 = 30000 + 1000 v
1000 v= 52500 – 30000
1000 v = 22500
v = 22.5 m/s
hence the velocity of car B after the collision will be 22.5 m/s.
Explanation: Mass of the bullet, m1 = 10 g
= 0.01 kg
velocity of the bullet, v1 = 400 m/s
Momentum of the bullet = m1 × v1
= 0.01 × 400 kg.m/s ……..(1)
Now, the bullet gets embedded into a wooden block of mass 900 g. Now the mass of wooden block along with the embedded bullet will be 900 + 10 = 910 g.
Mass of wooden block + Bullet, m2 = 900 + 10
= 0.91 kg
Velocity of wooden block + bullet, v2 = ?
Momentum of wooden block + bullet = m2 × v2
= 0.91 × v2 kg.m/s ……….(2)
According to the law of conservation of momentum, the two momenta as given by equations (1) and (2) should be equal.
m1 × v1 = m2 × v2
0.01 × 400 = 0.91 × v2
= 4.4 m/s
Hence the velocity acquired by the wooden block (having the bullet embedded in it) is 4.4 metres per second.
Explanation: Acceleration is inversely proportional to mass if force is constant.
Explanation: Using relation F = ma where m is mass and a is acceleration.
