Hi. Can someone please show me how to do the following problem: "An 11.2 g object moving to the right at 21.3 cm/s makes an elastic head-on collision with a 17.3 g object moving in the opposite direction at 31.5 cm/s. What is the velocity of the 11.2 g object after the collision? (positive is to the right)" Thank you!
