    Momentum/Kinetic Energy Problem

    In the second part of the question it states that this is an elastic collision. Maybe that's why when I use the conservation of energy my number is within .01 of the conservation of momentum answer. conservation of momentum gives me 1.29 conservation of energy gives me 1.30

    Calculating work done using vectors

    Homework Statement A single constant force F = (2.84i + 4.60j) N acts on a 4.12 kg particle. Calculate the work done by this force if the particle moves from the origin to the point having the vector position r = (1.52i - 2.55j) m. Homework Equations W=FD The Attempt at a...
