Question

In an elastic collision involving two balls where one is stationary before the collision, can you make any generalizations about the speed and direction of the two balls after the collision? Consider the situations where (a) the moving ball is more massive than the stationary one; (b) the stationary ball is more massive than the moving ball, and (c) the two balls have equal masses.

Step 1

1 of 7**Given:**

a) $m_S<<m_M$ b) $m_S>>m_M$ c) $m_S=m_M$ $v_S=0\,\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}$ $v_M>0\,\frac{\text{m}}{\text{s}}$

In this task, we will consider 3 cases of elastic collision and determine the final velocities and directions of the ball.
