Problem 5

In a game of billiards, a red billiard ball is traveling in the positive x-direction with speed v and the cue ball is traveling in the negative x-direction with speed 3v when the two balls collide head on. Which statement is true concerning their velocities subsequent to the collision? Neglect any effects of spin. (a) red ball: 2v; cue ball: 3v (b) red ball: v; cue ball: 2v (c) red ball: 23v; cue ball: v (d) red ball: v; cue ball: 3v (e) The velocities cant be determined without knowing the mass of each ball.
