Suppose that a particle of mass m1 approaches a stationary mass m2 and that m2 > m1.
a) Describe the velocity of m2 after an elastic collision--that is, one in which both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved. Justify the answer mathematically.
b) What is the approximate momentum of m1 after the collision?
