# Two objects of ma

For this, firstly we have to calculate the total momentum of both the objects:

Momentum of first object:

= Mass of first object × Velocity of first object

= kg × 2 m/s

= 0.1 kg × 2 m/s

= 0.2 kg m/s

Momentum of second object:

= Mass of second object × velocity of object

= kg × 1 m/s

= 0.2 kg × 1 m/s

= 0.2 kg m/s

Total momentum = Momentum of first object + Momentum of second object

= 0.2 + 0.2

= 0.4 kg m/s

It is given that after the collision, the velocity of first object becomes 1.67 m/s

Momentum after collision (First object):

= kg × 1.67 m/s

= 0.1 kg × 1.67 m/s

= 0.167 kg m/s

Let, the velocity of second object after the collision be v m/s

Momentum after collision (Second object)

= kg × v m/s

= 0.2 kg × v m/s

= 0.2v kg m/s(ii)

Total momentum of the objects after collision = 0.167 + 0.2 v

We know that,

According to the law of conversion of momentum:

Total momentum before collision = Total momentum after collision

0.4 = 0.167 + 0.2 v

0.2 v = 0.4 – 0.167

0.2 v = 0.233

v =

v = 1.165 m/s

Therefore, the velocity of second object will be 1.165 m/s
