A 10g object moving to the right at 20cm/s makes an elastic head-on collision with a 15g object moving in the opposite at 30cm/s. Find the velocity of each object after the collision.

answer: -40cm/s, 10cm/s

  1. Assume both total momentum and total kinetic energy are conserved, and that the recoil velocities are along the same axis.

    I will be glad to critique your work.
