8.84: a) The relative speed of approach before the collision is the relative speed at which the balls separate after the collision. Before the collision, they are approaching with relative speed 2 v , and so after the collision they are receding with speed 2 v . In the limit that the larger ball has the much larger mass, its speed after the collision will be
