    24 cm/s overtakes and collides elastically with
    a 34 g object moving in the same direction at
    14 cm/s.

    Find the velocity of the slower object after
    the collision.

    Answer in units of cm/s.

    A(n) 4.72 kg sphere makes a perfectly in-
    elastic collision with a second sphere that is
    initially at rest. The composite system moves
    with a speed equal to one-third the original
    speed of the 4.72 kg sphere.

    What is the mass of the second sphere?

    Answer in units of kg.
