1. Calculate the velocity of the target ball after the collision.

2. Calculate the mass of the target ball.

**bobpursley**, Thursday, November 12, 2009 at 3:46pmConservation of momentum leads to

.2kg*8.2m/s=.2kg*(-3.9)m/s + Mass*V

Solve for V in therms of all the other.

Then put that into this for V

conservation of energy.

1/2 .2 *8.2^2=1/2 .2*(3.9)^2 + 1/2 MV^2

then solve for mass, after that, go back and solve for V
