Two identical discs of mass m and of radius R touch each other and move with the same velocity perpendicularly to the line segment which joins their centres of mass, along the surface of a horizontal smooth tabletop. There is a third disc of mass M and of radius R at rest, at a point on the perpendicular bisector of the line segment joining the centres of mass of the two moving discs as shown in the figure. The two moving discs collide elastically with the third one, which is at rest. There is no friction between the rims of the discs. What should the ratio of M/m be in order that after the collision the two discs of mass m move perpendicularly to their initial velocity?

An object of mass M starts from rest at the bottom of a fixed incline of height H. A person decides to push the object up the incline in one of two ways with an applied force shown in the diagram. In each of the trials, the object reaches the top of the incline with speed V. How would the work done by the person on the block compare for the two trials? Assume the same constant non-zero coefficient of kinetic friction between the incline and the object for both trials.

A massless spring of stiffness 400 N/m is fastened at left end to a vertical wall as shown in the figure I. Initially block C of mass 2 kg and block D of mass 5 kg rest on horizontal surface with block C in contact with spring (But not compressing it.) and the block D in contact with block C. Block C is moved leftward, compressing spring by a distance of 0.5 m and held in place while block D remains at rest as shown in the figure.
