can some one please help with answering these questions as i have an idea but im confused with the calculation
Two spherical beads of mass m and radius r are free to slide horizontally on a frictionless wire of length l and may collide with each other or with the end stops. Initially at time t=0, one of the beads is stationary at the centre on the wire and the other is at one end, moving towards the centre at velocity v. All collisions are elastic and lose no energy.

i)Describe how asynchronous simulation can be used to predict the motions of this system and outline the data structures that would be required to implement such a program.

ii)Compute the movements of both beads in the system up to and including the third collision .
