Energy and Work

  1. Oct 14, 2014 #1
    A proton is traveling to the right at 3.50×107 m/s. It has a head-on perfectly elastic collision with a carbon atom. The mass of the carbon atom is 12 times the mass of the proton. What is the magnitude of proton speed after the collision? What is the magnitude of carbon atom speed after the collision?

    Welcome to PF!

    This looks like a homework assignment. We have a template for homework assignments where you describe the problem, list relevant formula and show some work and where you're stuck. We can't do your homework but we can help get past a difficulty so you can solve it yourself.
