Particle Collision#

A particle of mass 4 \(kg\) is travelling with velocity 3 \(\frac{m}{s}\hat{\imath}\) when it collides with another particle of mass 3 \(kg\) travelling with velocity 1 \(\frac{m}{s}\hat{\jmath}\).

Part 1#

The \(y\)-component of the initial momentum of this system is:

Answer Section#

  • 3 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\jmath}\)

  • 3 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\imath}\)

  • 3 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\imath}\) + 12 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\jmath}\)

  • 12 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\jmath}\)

  • 12 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\imath}\)

  • 12 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\imath}\) + 3 \(kg\) \(\dfrac{m}{s}\hat{\jmath}\)
