    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?

    What is the velocity of the 0.086 kg ball after the collision?
