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. (a) Based on the graph, were the measurements started at the instant the carts were released? Justify your answer. (b) Calculate the magnitude of the external force exerted on the system.

Justify your answer. 14. A 2.0 kg frictionless cart is moving at a constant speed of 3.0 m/s to the right on a horizontal surface, as shown above, when it collides with a second cart of undetermined mass m that is initially at rest. The force F of the collision as a function of time t is shown in the graph below, where t = 0 is the instant of initial contact. As a result of the collision, the second cart acquires a speed of 1.6 m/s to the right. Assume that friction is negligible before, during, and after the collision. (a) Calculate the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the 2.0 kg cart after the collision. (b) Calculate the mass m of the second cart. 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. (c) Calculate the acceleration of the cart at t = 3.0 s. (d) Calculate the distance traveled by the second cart during the 5.0 s interval after the collision (0 s < t < 5.0 s). (e) State whether the ramp goes up or down and calculate the maximum elevation (above or below the initial height) reached by the second cart on the ramp during the 5.0 s interval after the collision (0 s < t < 5.0 s). 15. Two blocks A and B of equal mass m are on a frictionless track, as shown in the figure above. 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 floor. (a) Derive an equation for the height h in terms of m, R, v top, and g, as appropriate. (b) Suppose that the speed v1 of block A is doubled. Will the final height of block B be greater than, less than, or equal to 2h? ____ Greater than 2h ____ Less than 2h ____ Equal to 2h 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.
