two blocks wood Aand B are coupled spring they are placed on a frictionless table .the spring is stretched and release show that kinetic energy of A divided by kinetic energy of B equal to mass of B divided by mass of ?

• physics -

The momenta are equal and opposite. Therefore
(KEa/KEb) = Va/Vb = Mb/Ma
