Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anonymous on Friday, October 23, 2009 at 11:19pm.

Two disks are on a frictionless plane as shown. The first disk, with mass M is initially at rest. The second disk with mass 2M has an initial velocity of 6 m/s in the y direction before colliding with the first disk. After the collision, the disk with mass 2M is deflected 15° (deflected to the left) and has speed 3 m/s. (Ignore the effects of gravity, all the pieces are moving in a horizontal plane, and you may neglect friction). What is the x component of the velocity of disk 1(deflected to the right) (mass M) after the collision?
