Question 15-58. The 15-lb suitcase A is released from rest at C. After it slides down the smooth ramp, it strikes the 10-15 suitcase B, which is originally at rest. If the coefficient of restitution between the suitcases is e = 0.3 and the coefficient of kinetic friction between the floor DE and each suitcase is uk = 0.4, determine (a) the velocity of A just before impact, (b) the velocities of A and B just after impact, and (c) the distance B slides before coming to rest. 6 ft B E D
