Two identical spheres A Problems and B, each of mass m, are attached to an inextensible inelastic cord of length L, and are resting at a distance a from each other on a frictionless horizontal surface. Sphere B is given a velocity 0 in a direction perpendicular to line AB and moves without friction until it reaches B9 when the cord becomes taut. Determine (a) the magnitude of the velocity of each sphere immediately after the cord has become taut, (b) energy lost as the cord becomes taut.
