Homework Help: Quick question about universal gravitation collisions.

  1. Nov 12, 2006 #1
    When two masses collide, assuming there are no external forces on the system of the two masses, will they collide with the same velocities or will it depend on the conserved momentum?

    Edit -- Assume they're released from rest, since that's what the problem I'm working on states.

    You will have to explain the whole problem. Your question is not understandable.
