Two billiard balls of equal mass undergo a perfectly elastic head-on collision. If one 1.
ball’s initial speed was and the other’s was in the opposite direction, 2.00 ms,3.00 ms
what will be their speeds after the collision?
Let A represent the ball moving at 2.00 m/s, and call that direction the positive direction. Let B
represent the ball moving at 3.00 m/s in the opposite direction. So v！2.00ms and A

tackle by a tackler running due west. Calculate (a) the original momentum of the
fullback, (b) the impulse exerted on the fullback, (c) the impulse exerted on the tackler, and (d) the average force exerted on the tackler.

(c) The impulse on the tackler is the opposite of the impulse on the fullback, so
(d) The average force on the tackler is the impulse on the tackler divided by the time of interaction.

A wheel of diameter of 68.0 cm slows down uniformly from 8.40 m/s to rest over a 3.
distance of 115 m. (a) What is the total number of revolutions the wheel rotates in
coming to rest? (b) What is the angular acceleration? (c) How long does it take for the
wheel to come to the stop?

4. A hollow cylinder (hoop) is rolling on a horizontal surface at speed when it v！3.3 ms
reaches a 15º incline. (a) How far up the incline will it go? (b) How long will it be on the
incline before it arrives back at the bottom?
(a) Assuming that there are no dissipative forces doing work,
conservation of energy may be used to find the final
height h of the hoop. Take the bottom of the incline to be
the zero level of gravitational potential energy. We
assume that the hoop is rolling without sliding, so that h
