Magnetic Velocity

How would I figure out the velocity of a ball at the end of the chain.
For example if I had 4 half inch magnets each one 6 inches apart with 3 quarter inch steel ball behind each magnet.
If the starting velocity of the first ball to hit the magnet is 10mph.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What if i changed the ball size half way through.
For example if I had 4 half inch magnets each one 6 inches apart with 3 1/4 inch steel ball behind the first two magnets and 3 1/8 inch steel ball behind the last 2 balls
Example video to help understand setup
