Problem 8.10: Is the collision elastic, inelastic, or explosive?

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

The color-coded graphs show the velocities of the red and black balls, respectively (position is given in meters and time is given in seconds). Would you define the collision shown as elastic, inelastic, totally inelastic, or explosive? Assume both balls have the same mass. Restart.
