A. Two objects collide in elastic collision (one is at rest). When is the greatest KE transferred?
B. Two objects w/unequal mass are at rest (frictionless surface) and have equal forces acting on them for equal amts of time. When these forces are remove, what will the object with greater mass experience?
The Attempt at a Solution
A. Since masses are conserved, wouldn't the only variable change is the velocity? So shouldn't it be where the moving object is traveling very fast, or does this question involve mass?
B. I used equation F=p/t. If the forces are equal and so is time, wouldn't the momentum be the same for both? Considering the surface is frictionless.
