Step 1

1 of 9The sum momentum before the collision is:

$P=p_b+ p_r$

where $p_b$ is the momentum of the blue ball and $p_r$ is the momentum of the red ball.

The sum momentum after the collision is:

$P'=p_b'+ p_r'$

where $p_b'$ is the momentum of the blue ball after the collision and $p_r'$ is the momentum of the red ball after the collision.

The equation for the momentum is.

$p=mv$

where $m$ is the mass of the object, and $v$ its speed.
