A 46.0 g marble moving at 2.20 m/s strikes a 26.0 g marble at rest. Note that the collision is elastic and that it is a "head-on" collision so all motion is along a line.
(a) What is the speed of 46.0 g marble immediately after the collision?
(b) What is the speed of 26.0 g marble immediately after the collision?
