    Rotational speed versus linear motion problem

    Here is the question: The speed of a moving bullet can be determined by allowing the bullet to pass through two rotating paper disks mounted a distance 0.921 m apart on the same axle. From the angular displacement 27.4 degrees of the two bullet holes in the disks and the rotational speed...

    I need help with a collision problem

    The question is as follows: A 4g particle moving at 30 m/s collides with a 0.99 g particle initially at rest. After the collision the two particles have velocities that are directed 27 degrees on either side of the original line of motion of the 4 g particle. What is the speed of the 0.99 g...
