8. Example: Standing near the edge of the roof of a 12-m high building, you kick a
ball with an initial speed of vi = 16 m/s at an angle of 60&deg; above the horizontal.
Neglecting air resistance, use conservation of energy to find how high above the
height of the building the ball rises and its speed just before it hits the ground.

velocity of 20.0 m/s. Use conservation of energy to find how high it goes.

replaces a damaged solar panel. Pushing the detached panel away into space,
she is propelled in the opposite direction. The astronaut’s mass is 60 kg and the

she shoves away the panel, and she shoves it at 0.3 m/s relative to the
spaceship. What is her subsequent velocity relative to the spaceship?

off his chest. Suppose that a gangster sprays Superman’s chest with 3 g bullets at
the rate of 100 bullets/min, and the speed of each bullet is 500 m/s. Suppose too
that the bullets rebound straight back at 500 m/s. What is the magnitude of the
average force on Superman’s chest from the stream of bullets?
3. A 4-kg block moving right at 6 m/s collides elastically with a 2-kg block moving
right at 3 m/s. Find their final velocities.
4. An alpha particle with a mass of 4.0 amu (atomic mass units) collides with an
oxygen nucleus with a mass of 16 amu that is initially at rest. The alpha particle
is scattered at an angle of 64.0 degrees from its initial direction of motion, and the
oxygen nucleus recoils at an angle of 51.0 degrees on the opposite side of that
initial direction. The final speed of the nucleus is 1.20 x 105 m/s. Find the final
and initial speeds of the alpha particle.
5. In a pool game, the cue ball, which has an initial speed of 10 m/s, makes an elastic
collision with the eight ball, which is initially at rest. After the collision, the cue
ball moves at an angle of 60&deg; to the left of its initial velocity. The eight ball
moves at an angle of 30&deg; to the right of the cue ball’s initial velocity. What is the
speed of each ball after the collision? Each ball has a mass of 0.17 kg.
6. You are at the wheel of a 1200-kg car traveling east through an intersection when
a 3000-kg truck traveling north through the intersection crashes into your car.
Your car and the truck stick together after impact, and skid at an angle of 59&deg;
north of east. The driver of the truck claims that you were at fault because you
were speeding. You look for evidence to disprove this claim. First, there were no
skid marks, indicating that neither you nor the truck driver saw the accident
coming and braked hard; second, there is a sign reading “Speed limit 80 km/h” on
the road you were driving on; and third, the speedometer of the truck was
smashed with the needle stuck at 50 km/h, indicating that the truck’s speed at
impact was 50 km/h. Does this evidence support or disprove the claim that you
were speeding?
7. Three particles with masses 1.2 kg, 2.5 kg, and 3,4 kg form an equilateral triangle

and oxygen has a mass of 16 amu.
