A neutron collides elastically with a helium nucleus (at rest initially) whose mass is four times that of the neutron. The helium nucleus is observed to rebound at an angle è'2 = 45° from the neutron's initial direction. The neutron's initial speed is 6.6x10^5 m/s. Determine the angle at which the neutron rebounds, è'1, measured from its initial direction.


What is the speed of the neutron after the collision?
___ m/s

What is the speed of the helium nucleus after the collision?
___ m/s
