Applied Mechanics and Graphic Statics
The masses of two balls are in the ratio of 2 : 1 and their respective velocities are in the ratio of 1 : 2 but in opposite direction before impact. If the coefficient of restitution is ½, the velocities of separation of the balls will be equal to

Original velocity in the same direction
Original velocity in the opposite direction
Half the original velocity in the same direction
Half the original velocity in the opposite direction

Applied Mechanics and Graphic Statics
‘u₁’ and ‘u₂’ are the velocities of approach of two moving bodies in the same direction and their corresponding velocities of separation are ‘v₁’ and ‘v₂’. As per Newton's law of collision of elastic bodies, the coefficient of restitution (e) is given by

e = v₁ - v₂/u₂ + u₁
e = v₁ - v₂/u₂ - u₁
e = v₂ - v₁/u₁ - u₂
e = u₂ - u₁/v₁ - v₂
