98. ## Physics for understanding

Okay we have this problem: 50 kg mass traveling at 10 m/s strikes a 100kg mass at rest find the final velocity each....if... 1. it is elastic 2. if it isnt elastic i know for an elastic something has to be 100% like 100% of momentum is conserved. I don't

99. ## Stats

Suppose X & Y are two independent stocks' returns with: E(X) = E(Y) =15% and V(X) = 144, V(Y) = 256 Problem 1. Buy half X and half Y, so w1 = w2 = 0.5 and Z = (X+Y)/2 Note: The answer says that the variance is 100 but I thought it would be 200. Since I
