I am confused about problem number seven part b in this pdf. http://aplusphysics.com/ap1/Problems/AP1 Momentum.pdf I read the given answer, and I am still confused. I don't know how you are supposed to get 0 m/s for the velocity of the block. Why do you use negative impulse for the block when you use positive impulse for the sphere? When do you use negative impulse? Why don't you use the mass of the entire system, which would be the block and the ball? This has to do with it being elastic/inelastic, but I don't know how you can tell from an impulse graph. Help??

Version 2nd Edition
AP* Physics 1 Essentials is an easytoread guide to the entire AP Physics 1 course, featuring more than 600 workedout problems with full solutions and deeper understanding questions. AP Physics 1 Essentials covers all major topics included in the AP Physics 1 course, including: kinematics, dynamics, momentum, impulse, gravity, uniform circular motion, rotation, work, energy, power, mechanical waves, sound, electrostatics, and circuits. AP Physics 1 Essentials is integrated with the APlusPhysics.com website, which includes online question and answer forums, videos, animations, and supplemental problems to help you master the essential concepts of physics. This book is designed to assist physics students in their high school AP Physics courses both as a guide throughout the course as well as a review book to assist in endofcourse exam preparation. Its focus is on providing the bare bones, essential concepts necessary for success in the course in a straightforward and easytoread manner, leaving development of indepth problem solving and lab work to the classroom, where it is most effective. In short, this is not intended as a substitute for a standard textbook or course, but rather as an invaluable supplementary resource. New 2nd edition includes more than 90 APstyle problems to test your understanding and help prepare you for the AP Physics 1 Exam. Additional supplemental AP1 level problems are available on the APlusPhysics site.

In the following diagram, a force F acts on a cart in motion on a frictionless surface. The initial and final velocities of each cart are shown. Rank the energy required to change each cart's velocity from greatest to least. A: Weighs 2 kg, 5 m/s to 2 m/s  Change in KE = 1/2*2*(2*25*5) J = 21 J B: Weighs 3 kg, 3 m/s to 3 m/s  Change in KE = 1/2*3*(3*3(3)*(3)) J = 0 J C: Weighs 5 kg, 5 m/s to 6 m/s  Change in KE = 1/2*5*(6*65*5) J = 27.5 J D: Weighs 4 kg, 1 m/s to 2 m/s  Change in KE = 1/2*4*(2*2(1)*(1)) J = 6 J The answer says that the ranking is C, B, A, D, which doesn't make any sense to me given the calculations I made. Can someone please explain what I did wrong, or clarify the question?

Chapter 7: Circular Motion and Rotation Test Your Understanding
veevian posted a question in Homework Help
In the AP Physics I Essentials book, I'm a little bit stuck on question 5 for Chapter 7 Test Your Understanding. The problem states "A marble is rolled separately down two different inclines of the same height as shown below. Compare the speed of the marble at the bottom of incline A to the speed of the marble at the bottom of incline B. Compare the time it takes the marble to reach the bottom of incline A to the time it takes to reach the bottom of incline B." There is also a picture with a ball on top of an incline that is straight, and another picture with a ball on top of an incline that is curved. I can explain why incline B would result in greater speed resulting in faster time due to the cycloid path/Brachistochrone Curve since the marble is aided by gravity and the beginning is steeper so more PE to KE for incline B etc. etc., but I can't explain it mathematically (w/equations and all). I tried using WorkEnergy theorem, but that didn't really work...Also, I'm confused on how we connect the concepts of angular motion to this problem. I appreciate the help! 
A 0.15kilogram baseball moving at 20 m/s is stopped by a catcher in 0.010 seconds. The average force stopping the ball is: (A) 3.0x10^2 N (B) 3.0X10^0 N (C) 3.0X10^1 N (D) 3.0X10^2 N The explanation says that it takes 0.010 seconds for the baseball to accelerate from 0 m/s to 20 m/s, but that doesn't really match up with the question... Is the wording a little weird?
