    Find V2 of an elastic equation

    Homework Statement A 0.038-kg pet lab mouse sits on a 0.35-kg air-track cart, as shown in (Figure 1) . The cart is at rest, as is a second cart with a mass of 0.25 kg. The lab mouse now jumps to the second cart. After the jump, the 0.35-kg cart has a speed of v1=0.86m/s. What is the speed v2...

    What is the acceleration of the block?

    In that case, there is a normal force. So the forces on the block are the Normal force, MG and 250cos16, 250 sin16

    What is the acceleration of the block?

    Homework Statement A 50.0-kg block is being pulled up a 16.0° slope by a force of 250 N that is parallel to the slope. The coefficient of kinetic friction between the block and the slope is 0.200. What is the acceleration of the block? Homework Equations Fk=μkN F=MA The Attempt at a...

    Find the potential, kinetic, and mechanical energy

    wouldn't the potential energy increase and kinetic energy decrease? the total energy should remain conserved.

    Find the potential, kinetic, and mechanical energy

    I just reviewed it in my textbook and I was so wrong with the units. Going back to part B I got, PE: (.5)(637N/m)(.01m)2=.03185J I still don't understand how the velocity changes with each compression. would I solve for a new velocity and use the ΔKE to find the new velocity? ΔKE=...

    Find the potential, kinetic, and mechanical energy

    I thought x represented distance, so I assumed it was the 4.15 cm in the beginning of the problem. I thought K was the value that was given for the compression.
