Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My prof has assigned several homework sets dealing with finding the relativistic cm frame for two particles. However, he has not been quite up to speed with grading them, so I don't know if I really have a clue what I'm doing, and he hasn't gone over it much in class. I can't seem to glean much from A.P. French about the specific method for finding this frame.

I understand that it would be logical to use energy conservation to solve this problem. But I can't seem to find a systematic method for what should be a simple procedure.

Could someone give me a quick walkthrough on the simplest procedure for doing this? I just want to find out if I'm doing something wrong BEFORE I get these homeworks back.

Thanks much,

Ben
