2 pool balls of equal mass experience a perfectly elastic head on collision. 1 ball is traveling at 2m/s and the other at 3m/s in the opposite direction.What is thier speed just after impact? I know the balls swap speed and change direction but can't find the correct formula to prove this. Please help!
