Problem 29PE

Professional Application Two manned satellites approach one another at a relative speed of 0.250 m/s, intending to dock. The first has a mass of 4.00×103 kg , and the second a mass of 7.50×103 kg . If the two satellites collide elastically rather than dock, what is their final relative velocity?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution In this problem we have to calculate the final relative velocity of two manned satellites approaches towards each other and collides elastically using the given data respectively: . Step 1 of 3 For an elastic collision, the momentum will be conserved. So, Here is the mass of one satellite, is the mass of another satellite, is the relative velocity of first satellite before collision, is the relative velocity of second satellite before collision, and is the relative velocity after collision.
