Question description

  1. 3.1  Draw a diagram of all forces acting on each cart when they collide. Which forces will influence the total P and KE most?

  2. 3.2  In our experiment, can we achieve a completely elastic collision? a completely inelastic collision?

  3. 3.3  In an inelastic collision in a closed system, can some of the total momentum be lost? Some of the kinetic energy?

  4. 3.4  In an elastic collision in a closed system, can some of the total momentum be lost? Some of the kinetic energy be lost?

  5. 3.5  If kinetic energy is lost, where does it go? Does conservation of energy apply?
