Ball 1 and ball 2 are each moving in the +x direction. The ratio of their velocities is v2/v1=4.0. A force is then applied to ball 2, causing its velocity to triple. The velocity of ball 1 remains unchanged. As a result, the velocity of the center of mass of the system doubles. Find the ratio m2/m1 of the masses of the balls. Topic: Impulse and Momentum.
