I need help with some of these problems. Any kind of help will be most appreciated(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. Speed amplifier. In Fig. 10-3, block 1 of mass m1 slides along an x axis on a frictionless floor with a speed of v1i = 2.80 m/s. Then it undergoes a one-dimensional elastic collision with stationary block 2 of mass m2 = 0.200m1. Next, block 2 undergoes a one-dimensional elastic collision with stationary block 3 of mass m3 = 0.200m2

2. Speed deamplifier. In Fig. 10-5, block 1 of mass m1 slides along an x axis on a frictionless floor with a speed of 2.40 m/s. Then it undergoes a one-dimensional elastic collision with stationary block 2 of mass m2 = 2.70m1. Next, block 2 undergoes a one-dimensional elastic collision with stationary block 3 of mass m3 = 2.70m2.

3. A block of mass m1 = 2.2 kg slides along a frictionless table with a speed of 8 m/s. Directly in front of it, and moving in the same direction, is a block of mass m2 = 5.0 kg moving at 2.8 m/s. A massless spring with spring constant k = 1100 N/m is attached to the near side of m2, as shown in Fig. 10-35. When the blocks collide, what is the maximum compression of the spring? (Hint: At the moment of maximum compression of the spring, the two blocks move as one. Find the velocity by noting that the collision is completely inelastic to this point.)
