    1. A small mass m1 = 0.001 kg initially moving with speed v1 = 2001 m/s collides with and sticks to a larger mass m2 = 1.000 kg initially at rest. What is the final speed of the two-mass combination?

    2. What was the initial kinetic energy of the small mass before the collision?

    3. What is the kinetic energy of the two-mass combination after the collision?

  1. An object of mass m and initial speed v0 sliding on a horizontal frictionless surface encounters a frictionless ramp. To what vertical height will the object rise before coming to rest?
