1. A blue puck with a mass of 0.0400 kg, sliding with a velocity of magnitude 0.200 ms-1 on a frictionless horizontal table, makes a perfectly elastic, head-on collision with a red puck with mass, m, initially at rest. After the collision, the velocity of the blue puck is 0.050 ms¯¹ in the same direction as its initial velocity.
Find: a) the velocity (magnitude and direction) of the red puck after the collision
and b) the mass, m, of the red puck.
