Two manned satellites approach one another at a relative speed of 0.100 m/s, intending to dock. The first has a mass of 5.00 ✕ 103 kg, and the second a mass of 7.50 ✕ 103 kg. If the two satellites collide elastically rather than dock, what is their final relative velocity in meters per second? (Adopt the reference frame in which the second satellite is initially at rest and assume that the positive direction is directed from the second satellite towards the first satellite.)

Problem 2 A 1.0 kg cannonball is fired horizontally with a speed of 200 rn/s at two blocks (each with mass 10.0 kg at rest on a frictionless surface). The ball embeds itself in the first block, and then the ball and block 1 traveling together collide elastically with block 2. All external forces are negligible compared with the net explosion or collision forces. Use the reference frame provided. Neglect the material removed from the block during collision with the...
