Two balls collide head-on on a table. The first ball has a mass of 0.50 kg and an initial velocity of 12.0 m/s. The second ball has a mass of 0.75 kg and an initial velocity of -16.0 m/s. After the collision, the first ball travels at a velocity of -21.6 m/s. What is the velocity of the second ball after the collision? Assume a perfectly elastic collision and no friction between the balls and the table.

  • Physical science - ,

    When the balls are moving in opposite directions
    v₁= {-2m₂v₂₀ +(m₁-m₂)v₁₀}/(m₁+m₂)
    v₂={ 2m₁v₁₀ - (m₂-m₁)v₂₀}/(m₁+m₂)

  • Physical science - ,

    -6.4 m/s
