A glider of mass 0.143 kg is moving to the right on a frictionless, horizontal air track with a speed of 0.750 m/s. It has a head-on collision with a glider 0.303kg that is moving to the left with a speed of 2.13 m/s. Suppose the collision is elastic.

2. Relevant equations

MaVa1+MbVb1=MaVa2+MbVb2

1/2MaVa1^2+1/2MbVb1^2=1/2MaVa2^2+1/2MbVb2^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Where do I start with this? I have all of the left side of the equations, but nothing on the right
