This is when the two pucks were moving at opposite directions. This was when one puck was moving at a 45 degree angle and the other one was stable.

Unformatted text preview: This is when the two were moving at different angles towards each other. So as you can see from this data that the velocity of the x-motion comes out to be the same at the initial position as it does in the final position. You could say the same is true for the y-motion velocities. So in conclusion, I would state that in a frictionless plane the two pucks that collided together with equal masses, would indeed have the same velocity at the initial point as it does right after impact....
