Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Brian on Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at 3:14pm.

A proton, moving with a velocity of vinitial i, collides elastically with another proton that is initially at rest. Assuming that the 2 protons have equal speeds after the collision, find (a) the speed of each proton after the collision in terms of vinitial and (b) the direction of the velocity vectors after the collision.

I found part (a) to be Vfinal= Vinitial(sqroott/2)
