Collision Examples Using Animator
Be sure the simulation has finished loading before you begin.
Click on the problem number to initialize the simulation at the top of the page. Then
answer the question after you have run the simulation. You may start and stop the
simulations using the buttons on the bottom of the animation. Click and drag inside the
animation to read the coordinates.
- Problem 1
What is the ratio of the two masses?
- Problem 2
The red and the black balls have the same mass. Does the collision shown obey the laws
of classical dynamics?
- Problem 3
Is this collison elastic? Is momentum conserved if the red and the black balls have
the same mass.
- Problem 4
What is the ratio of the black to the red mass?
