Unformatted text preview: which will help determine the final speeds of A and B ; New Eq. 2 divided by Eq. 1; Equation 3 Nearly done! Now, the next trick is to substitute Equation 3 back into Equation 1 to first eliminate so you can obtain the equation for . After that, rearrange Equation 3, solving it for so that you can then insert it back into Equation 1 once again, but this time to eliminate to solve for . Once you’ve done this, you will now have the two velocities of both objects right after they collide, again, assuming a perfectly elastic collision....
