13. The figure above represents two carts, with magnets attached, that make up a system. The mass
of one cart and magnet is 1 kg and the mass of the other is 5 kg. The carts are initially at rest on
a frictionless track. They are released from rest and exert a repulsive force on each other. The
track is not quite horizontal, with the right side slightly lower than the left side.
The speeds of the carts are measured over a 10 s interval. The graph below shows the momentum of the
two carts as a function of time for this interval as they move along the x-axis.

After the collision, the second cart eventually experiences a ramp, which it traverses with no frictional
losses. The graph below shows the speed v of the second cart as a function of time t for the next 5.0 s,
where t = 0 is now the instant at which the carts separate.

Block A, initially moving with speed v1, has a perfectly elastic collision with block B. Block B has a
speed v1 immediately after the collision, and then it travels around a circular loop of radius R,
where R is much larger than the size of the blocks. The speed of block B at the top of the loop is
vtop. Block B then slides up a ramp until it comes momentarily to rest at a height h above the
(a) Derive an equation for the height h in terms of m, R, v top, and g, as appropriate.

Briefly explain how you arrived at your answer.
(c) Blocks A and B (both of mass m) are moved to a different frictionless track, as shown above. Let v A be
the minimum initial speed for block A that allows block B to make it over the hump in the track. Block A
is then replaced with a larger block, block C, which has mass 2m, as shown below.
Block C makes a completely inelastic collision with block B so that both blocks stick together and travel
along the track. What is the minimum initial speed v C that block C must have so that the two-block
system makes it over the hump? Express your answer in terms of v A.
