PhET Collision Lab: Introduction in One Dimension Directions: 1. Experiment with one-dimension elastic collisions (Check 1d and set elasticity at 100%). Make a table like this to help you organize your thoughts about collisions; use landscape layout so you can fit everything; “x” means there would not be a drawing in that box. Try varying mass and initial speed (including some initial zero velocity). I am expecting several trials. The Restart button is handy for replaying an experiment. Trial 1 Pictures of balls with vector More trials Pictures of balls with Mass 1 Mass 2 x x x Initial velocity 1 Initial velocity 2 Initial total velocity Initial total momentum x Kinetic energy initial Final velocity 1 x Final velocit y2 Final total velocity Final total momentum Kinetic energy final x x x vector 2. Think about the relationships you observed and then answer these questions: a. What the difference between the quantities that have vector drawings and the ones that don’t? b. In your own words, what does “elastic collision” mean? c. List quantities that have the same value (and direction if a vector) before and after the collision. If a quantity has the same value (and direction if a vector), it is said to be “conserved” d. What quantities are not “conserved”? e. Run one more experiment to check your answer to 2c and 2d. Describe your experiment and explain how it supports your answers. ...
