A 0.395kg blue bead slides on a frictionless, curved wire, starting from rest at point in the figure below, where h = 1.50 m. At point , the blue bead collides elastically with a 0.625kg green bead at rest. Find the maximum height the green bead rises as it moves up the wire.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Theres no need for a figure if what you have written is all that the problem includes. Since this is on a frictionless surface and they collide elastically, it is a problem concerning the conservation of energy. So, U(initial)=U(final); m(1)gh(initial)=m(2)gh(final). Plug in your numbers and youll get it. (.948m)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you find green bead velocity from conversation of momentum between two time befor collide & after collide so use conservation of energy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I use U(potential energy) for both b/c when it starts at rest it obviously has no kinetic energy and it is all potential. When the green bead is at its max height, its at rest (relatively) so its energy is also all in the form of potential energy (U).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you'r right but we ought be use two conservation of energy one's for finding velocity of green &2nd for finding h of green not using one relation
