There are two spheres in contact in a row. The mass of the left one is m and the right is 2m. If there's a slight push of F to the right on the left ball. What would happen to the two balls?

Thanks!!

What would happen depends on the spheres, or whether it is a hard or soft impact

It's purely elastic.
