Simultaneous Conservation of Energy and Momentum 1.) Collisions: conservation of momentum : So far two unknowns: , one equation 2.) Elastic collision: conservation of energy : Now we have two unknowns: , two equations In the following, we will use both properties to calculate the two unknowns.

It is independent of the masses.
