Is it to possible to use the special case of elastic collisions in one dimension with bodies that posses different mass. Ordinarily I know that if the body has same mass the velocity of the bodies will simply be exchanged but is the fact also hold for body with different masses?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
