# Q. Three blocks A, B and C are lying on a smooth horizontal surface, as shown in the figure. A and B have equal masses, m while C has mass M. Block A is given an brutal speed v towards B due to which it collides with B perfectly inelastically. The combined mass collides with C, also perfectly inelastically $\frac{5}{6}$ th of the initial kinetic energy is lost in whole process. What is value of M/m ?

Solution:

## $k_{i} = \frac{1}{2} mv^{2}_{0}$ From linear momentum conservation $mv_{0} = \left(2m+M\right)v_{f}$ $\Rightarrow v_{f} = \frac{mv_{0}}{2m+M}$ $\frac{k_{i}}{k_{f}} = 6$ $\Rightarrow \frac{\frac{1}{2} mv_{0}^{2} }{\frac{1}{2} \left(2m+M\right) \left(\frac{mv_{0}}{2m+M}\right)^{2}}= 6$ $\Rightarrow \frac{2m+M}{m} = 6$ $\Rightarrow \frac{M}{m} = 4$
