Elastic Collision (1D) Calculator  

This calculator (by Stephen R. Schmitt) computes the final velocities for an elastic collision of two masses in one dimension. The program is operated by entering the masses and initial velocities of two objects, selecting the rounding option desired, and then pressing the Calculate button. All entries are cleared by pressing the Clear button. It is assumed that m_{2} is to the right of m_{1} and that positive velocities are to the right. If the program returns the error message: cannot solve
