Mini-Quiz: Applications of Collision Equations

by Ron Kurtus (1 August 2013)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. If k = 3, what is V2 as a function of v1?

V2 = 2v1/3

V2 = −v1/5

V2 = v1/2

2. If m = M, what is the velocity of object A after the collision (v2)?

v2 = V2


v2 = v1

3. If M = m/3, what is v2 with respect to V2?

v2 = V2/3

v2 = V2

v2 = V2/4

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Physics. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Always do your best
