Elastic Collision of two particles. wiki Elastic Collision

Solve Conservation of Momentum and Kinetic Energy Equations for a point elastic collision.

m1*u1+m2*u2=m1*v1+m2*v2 m1*u1^2+m2*u2^2=m1*v1^2+m2*v2^2

Given [m1,u1,m2,u2] solve for v1 and v2 under ideal elastic collision conditions.

**Input:** [10, 1, 10, 0]

**Output:** [0 1] v1 and v2

**Future:** 2-D Elastic equal masses, 2-D Elastic equal masses with find contact, Relativistic Elastic, and 3-D Elastic Equal Masses
