Conservation of Momentum - 2 Mass Inelastic Collision

Set the starting values :

           M1 (left) (kg) =    
           M2 (right) (kg) =    
           ---------------------------------------------------
           Initial V1 =    
           Initial V2 =    
           ---------------------------------------------------
           Restitution coeff =    
  * If you manually change values ...

Description
There are two masses that can collide inelastically - you can adjust the coefficient of restitution from 0 (completely inelastic - they stick together) to 1 (completely elastic - bounce apart, and conserve KE). You can specify the initial velocities and masses for each mass, and the coefficient of restitution. (The arrow buttons near the initial values will double or half the values. If you manually change a value {not using the arrows}, click the UPDATE button.)
