Problem 9.43

(a) Derive a formula for the fraction of kinetic energylost, A K /K, in terms of m and M for the ballistic pendulumcollision of Example 9-11. (b) Evaluate for m = 16.0 g andM = 380 g.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Modern Physics Lecture 1: Foundations and Special Relativity Position, Time, and Rotation are all continuous symmetries (discrete symmetries such as reflection do not produce the same results as below):  Invariance in position (changing where in space you perform your experiment) proves momentum conservation  Invariance in rotation (eg. rotating your entire experiment by 90 degrees) proves conservation of angular momentum  Invariance in time (changing when in time you perform your experiment, eg. today vs. tomorrow) proves energy conservation Newtonian Mechanics:  Inertia  F=ma  The force of object 1 on object 2 is equal in magnitude to the force of object 2 on object 1  True in an inertial reference frame
