**Neoh**, Wednesday, June 16, 2010 at 9:33ama)Let final speed of A be v1, and final speed of B be v2.Using conservation of momentum, consider the horizontal:

40m = v1*cos30 + v2*cos45

and the vertical

0 = v1*sin30 + v2*sin45

In second equation, express v1 in terms of v2, then substitute into the first equation to find v2. v1 is found in similar way.

b) From a), u have the value of v1. Calculate the fraction (v1*v1)/(40*40)
