Submitter: Flipping Physics

In a universe devoid of anything else, two identical spheres of mass, m, and radius, R, are released from rest when they have a distance between their centers of mass of X. Find the magnitude of the impulse delivered to each sphere until just before they make contact. Want Lecture Notes? This is an AP Physics 1 topic.
