    Could ne1 do this question for me from the heinamann book rev ex2, q2b
    come on sum1 out there must be able to help me

    Two particles A and B have masses kM and M, where k is a +ve constant. Particles r moving in same direction, along same straight line, with speeds u and 2u. There is a collision, which halves the speed of A. After collision, both A and B continue to move in same direction as before.

    a. Find in terms of k and u, the speed of B after collision.
    b=(k+1)u which is correct

    b. In the collision, one twelfth of the total kinetic energy is lost.
    Find the possible values of k

    Initial KE = km/2(2u)² + mu²/2 = mu²/2(4k + 1)

    Final KE = kmu²/2 + u²(1 + k)²m/2 = mu²/2(k + (1 + k)²)

    Final KE = 11/12 (initial KE)

    so, 12(3k + 1 + k²) = 11(4k + 1)

    so 12k² - 8k + 1 = 0

    (6k - 1)(2k - 1) = 0

    jeeeeez...thnx for that...did 11(4k+1)=44k+1 :eek: :eek: :eek:
