Physics: Mechanics | Kinematics | Dynamics Mechanics | Kinematics | Dynamics Question #1045 from Eric
I was wondering if i could get help with this problem: Two billiard balls of equal mass undergo a head-on collision. The speed of ball 1 was initially 6.00 m/s to the right, and that of ball 2 was 8.00 m/s in the opposite direction (to the left). After they bounce off of each other the speed of ball 1 is 8.00 m/s. What is the speed of ball 2 after the collision?
According to the Momentum Concervation Law for a head-on collision:
