 A small mass m_{1} = 0.001 kg initially moving with speed
v_{1} = 2001 m/s
collides with and sticks to a larger mass m_{2} = 1.000 kg
initially at rest. What is the final speed of the twomass
combination?
 What was the initial kinetic energy of the small mass before the
collision?
 What is the kinetic energy of the twomass combination after the
collision?
 An object of mass m and initial speed v_{0}
sliding on a horizontal
frictionless surface encounters a frictionless ramp. To what vertical
height will the object rise before coming to rest?
