Dear student,

From conservation of linear momentum,

m_Av_0=m_Bv\implies v=\dfrac{m_A}{m_B}v_0

It is given that\dfrac{1}{2}m_Bv^2=\dfrac{1}{2}\implies \dfrac{1}{2}m_Bv^2=\dfrac{1}{2}\times \dfrac{1}{2}m_Av_0^2
\implies m_Bv^2=\dfrac{1}{2}m_Av_0^2

Solving the two relations gives,
\implies \dfrac{v}{v_0}=2\dfrac{v^2}{v_0^2} \implies v=\dfrac{v_0}{2}
Hence ceffcient of restitution=\dfrac{v_{sep}}{v_{app}}=\dfrac{v_0/2}{v_0}=0.5
