The acceleration of sphere A is a F m A A = = × = 0 225 450 3 . . N 5.0 10 kg m s 2 and the acceleration of sphere B is a F m B B = = × = 0 225 22 5 3 . . . N 10 10 kg m s 2 (c) Energy is conserved. The initial potential energy is U = 0.225 J, as calculated in part (a). The initial kinetic energy is zero since the spheres start from rest. The final potential energy is zero since the spheres are then far apart. The final kinetic energy is
