    Here also we will use the conservation of linear momentum. Ball A is moving with a velocity v= 16ft/s and it imparts some of this momentum to B and after the collision, since the pieces moves at some angles, we will write,

    m * 16 = [mb * vf] + m * va

    (vf is the velocity of the mass B if it were unbrocken and va is the final velocity of mass A)

    from the ...
