Um v m v AA BB =+ 1 2 1 2 22 . Momentum is also conserved, so 0 = + mv mv AA BB . These equations may be solved simultaneously for v A and v B . Substituting (/) BA B A vm m v =− , from the momentum equation into the energy equation, and collecting terms, we obtain Um m m m v AB A B A =+ 1 2 2 (/) ( ) . Thus, 3 333 2 2(0.225 J)(10 10 kg) 7.75 m/s. ( ) (5.0 10 kg)(5.0 10 kg 10 10 kg) B A AA B Um v mm m −−− × == = × + × 51.
