Collars A and B, of the same mass m, are moving toward each other with the velocities shown. Knowing that the coefficient of restitution between the collars is 0 (plastic impact), show that after impact (a) the common velocity of the collars is equal to half the difference in their speed before impact, (b) the loss in kinetic
