Two masses are positioned on a curved, frictionless track as shown. If the 7.2 kg
mass is released from a height, h, of 2.0 m and slides down the track, with what speed
does it strike the 49 kg mass?
After it strikes the 49 kg mass, the larger mass recoils with a speed of 1.604 m/s.
Assuming the collision is elastic, write out the equation(s) you would require to solve for the recoil speed. Note: you don’t need to solve for it, I’ve already done that for you. Just show me the starting point.
If the speed with which the 49 kg mass recoils is 1.604 m/s, then how high up the
track does the 7.2 kg mass bounce?
