Collisions

Question

A steel ball of radius 2 cm is at rest on a frictionless surface. Another ball of radius 4 cm moving at a velocity of 81 cm/sec collides elastically with first ball. After collision the smaller ball moves with speed of (cm/s)

Moderate
Solution

Ratio in radius of steel balls = 1/2
So, ratio in their masses =18      [As MVr3]
Let m1=8m and  m2=m

v2=2m1u1m1+m2=2×8m×818m+m=144cm/s
