A ball was thrown into a box. Determine Ek, P, and throwing speed when the:
mass of softball = 172.7g
mass of packed box = 2,043.5g
and the box moved from 0 cm to 2cm.
and the spring scale that remained parallel to the floor was Ff=8N.
Kinetic Energy: Ek=1/2mv2
Collision: m1v1 + m2V2 = (m1 + m2)v'
The Attempt at a Solution
I started with Work.
Then tried solving for V
V1 = 11.83V2
then plug it in to m1v1 + m2V2 = (m1 + m2)v' ?
Thank you :)
