     E)2.1 m/s

5.  A 2.0-kg object moving with a velocity of 5.0 m/s in the positive x direction strikes and sticks to a 3.0-kg object moving with a speed of 2.0 m/s in the same direction. How much kinetic energy is lost in this collision?
     A) 2.4 J
     B) 9.6 J
     C) 5.4 J
     D) 0.6 J
     E) 6.0 J

6.  A 12-g bullet moving horizontally strikes and remains in a 3.0-kg block initially at rest on the edge of a table. The block, which is initially 80 cm above the floor, strikes the floor a horizontal distance of 120 cm from its initial position. What was the initial speed of the bullet?

     E) 5.0 J

8.  A 3.0-kg mass sliding on a frictionless surface has a velocity of 5.0 m/s east when it undergoes a one-dimensional inelastic collision with a 2.0-kg mass that has an initial velocity of 2.0 m/s west. After the collision the 3.0-kg mass has a velocity of 1.0 m/s east. How much kinetic energy does the two-mass system lose during the collision?
     A) 22 J
     B) 24 J
     C) 26 J
