(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known dataSmall masses m1 (m1 = 30 kg) and m2 (m2A = 5 kg; m2B = 10 kg; m2C = 40 kg; m2D = 50 kg; m2E = 30 kg) are each attached to a string of length 2.0 m. The other end of each string is attached to a common point on the ceiling. The masses are raised until each string is at an angle of 22o with respect to vertical, and then simultaneously released. They collide elastically when the strings are vertical. For each case, rank the final velocity of m2, from smallest to largest.

2. Relevant equationsusing the elastic equation formula

3. The attempt at a solutioni don't understand y the heaviest one wouldn't be going the fastest.....
