# A body of mass m

Answer :

As it is not a head on collision, the two bodies move in different dimensions.

Initial velocity of 1^{st} body is u_{1} and 2^{nd} body is u_{2}=0 (as it is in rest).

Let v_{1} and v_{2} are the velocities of the bodies after collision.

Since the collision is elastic

According to law of conservation of momentum (in x direction)

________ (1)

Putting law of conservation of momentum in y direction

_________ (2)

By law of conservation of energy

__________ (3)

Squaring equation (1)

Equating the above equation with equation (3)

From equation (2)

So, it is proven that the collision is not head-on, the bodies go at right angle to each other after the collision.
