The green disk is initially at rest and is struck by the orange disk moving initially to the right at 5.00 m/s as in Figure P6.40a. After the collision, the orange disk moves in a direction that makes an angle of 37.0° with the horizontal axis while the green disk makes an angle of 53.0° with this axis as in Figure P6.40b.

Step 1

Given:

Both the discs (orange and the green) have the same mass.

Step 2

Calculating the speed of each d... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseAfter the collision Before the collision 5.00 m/s 37.0 V 53.0° Let the mass of the discs be 'm' As the collision is an oblique collision, so momentum will be conserved separately along x-axis and y-axis. Total momentum in x direction, before collision, (P. ), = m(5m/s) +m(0m/s)... (1 Total momentum in x-direction after collision, (Px); = m(vor cos 37°)+ m(vr cos 53°)....(2 fullscreen
