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.
