1. Find the velocity of the center of mass both before and after the collision. (These numbers should be nearly identical.) Show your work and show the two values side by side.
1. Using the initial COM velocity you found in step 1 above: verify that in the COM frame, the speed of each cart is the same before and after the collision. That is that the magnitude of velocity 1 is the same before and after the collision, and the magnitude of velocity 2 is the same before and after the collision: v01* = -v1* and v02* = -v2*

3.Verify that the closing speed before the collision has the same magnitude as the retreat speed after the collision

Cart 1

Mass : 1.0kg
