    Two spheres, one of mass m1=20000kg and the other mass m2=30000kg both have a radius of R=1.675m start from rest (in deep space) with their centers a distance of 4R apart. Determine the speed of each sphere when they collide. Also, determine the acceleration of each sphere at the moment they collide.
