A 0.060 kg tennis ball, moving with a speed of 7.80 m/s has a head-on collision with a 0.086 kg ball initially moving away from it in the same direction at a speed of 3.10 m/s. Assume a perfectly elastic collision and take the initial direction of the balls as positive.
What is the velocity of the tennis ball after the collision?
