Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Ana on Friday, March 5, 2010 at 11:30pm.

Two shuffleboard disks of equal mass, one orange and the other yellow, are involved in a perfectly elastic glancing collision. The yellow disk is initially at rest and is struck by the orange disk moving initially to the right at 5.60 m/s. After the collision, the orange disk moves in a direction that makes an angle of 33.4 with its initial direction. Meanwhile, the velocity vector of the yellow disk is perpendicular to the postcollision velocity vector of the orange disk. Determine the speed of each disk after the collision.


smaller speed______ m/s
larger speed_______ m/s

So far this is wut i tried,

Vo*cos33.4 + Vy*33.4 = 5.60
Vo*sin33.4 = Vy*33.4

i don't if this make senses...i'm lost
