A stationary object with mass mb is struck head-on by an object with mass ma that is moving initially at speed v0.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the collision is elastic, what percentage of the original energy does each object have after the collision?

I don't know how to find percentage.
