🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Pearlstein's class at CSU.

Solution: A 0.060-kg tennis ball, moving with a speed of 5.1 m/s, has a head-on collision with a 9.5×10−2-kg ball initially moving in the same direction at a speed of 2.8 m/s. Assuming a perfectly elastic collision, determine the speed and direction of each ball after the collision.
