Mass of the ball x, m_{1} = 1 kg
Speed of ball x, u_{1} = 2 m/s
Mass of ball y, m_{2} = 1 kg
Speed of ball y, u_{2} = 0 m/s (at rest)
Velocity of ball x after collision, v_{1} = 0 m/s
Velocity of ball y after collision, v_{2}
Acc. to the law of conservation of momentum
m_{1}u_{1} + m_{2}u_{2} = m_{1}v_{1} + m_{2}v_{2}
1 x 2 + 1 x 0 = 1 x 0 + 1 x v_{2}
v_{2 }= \(\frac{1 \times 2}{1}\) = 2 m/s
