Ina shoots a large marble (Marble A, mass: 0.08 kg) at a smaller marble (Marble B, mass: 0.05 kg) that is sitting still. Marble A was initially moving at a velocity of 0.5 m/s, but after the collision it has a velocity of –0.1 m/s. What is the resulting velocity of marble B after the collision? Be sure to show your work for solving this problem along with the final answer.

initial linear momentum=final linear momentum
Now, what we have is : the condition I mentioned above in the form of a diagram is of before collision...
Now here is the condition of the marbles AFTER collision in the form of a diagram... |dw:1351258449229:dw|
now using the law of conservation of momentum :
Momentum before collision = Momentum after collision
