Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Ashley on Wednesday, February 3, 2010 at 9:35pm.

A 0.0600 kg tennis ball, moving with a speed of 2.50 m/s, has a head-on collision with a 0.0900 kg ball initially moving away from it at a speed of 1.00 m/s. Assuming a perfectly elastic collision, what is the speed and direction of each ball after the collision?

-I was given that the answer for the speeds of the balls are .70m/s and 2.2m/s.


equations:

m1v1+m2v2 = m1v1'+m2v2'
V1-V2=V2' - V1'

My attempt:

with the given, I know that
m1= .06 kg
m2=.09 kg
v1= 2.5 m/s
v2= 1.0 m/s
after this, I got to .135=m1v1'+m2v2'
and 1.5= V2'-V1'
