Two pucks collide on an air hockey table. Puck A has a mass of 17.0 g and is initially traveling in the +x direction at 7.30 m/s. Puck B has a mass of 51.0 g and is initially at rest. After the pucks collide, puck A moves away at an angle of 42.0 degrees above the +x axis, while puck B travels at an angle of 38.0 degrees below the +x axis.

1. Calculate puck A's final speed.

2. Calculate puck B's final speed.

3. What fraction of kinetic energy was lost in this collision?

You’re an accident investigator at a scene where a drunk driver in a 2300 kg car has plowed into a 2000 kg parked car with its brake set. You measure skid marks showing that the combined wreckage moved 27 m before stopping, and you determine a frictional coefficient of 0.74. What do you report for the drunk driver’s speed just before the collision?

A 6.3 kg block with a speed of 4.8 m/s collides with a 12.6 kg block that has a speed of 3.2 m/s in the same direction. After the collision, the 12.6 kg block is observed to be traveling in the original direction with a speed of 4.0 m/s. (a) What is the velocity of the 6.3 kg block immediately after the collision? (b) By how much does the total kinetic energy of the system of two blocks change because of the collision? (c) Suppose, instead, that the 12.6 kg block ends up with a speed of 6.4 m/s. What then is the change in the total kinetic energy?
