A cue ball traveling at 4.0 m/s makes a glancing, elastic collision with a target ball of equal mass that is initially at rest. The cue ball is deflected so that it makes an angle of 30° with its original direction of travel.
(a) Find the angle between the velocity vectors of the two balls after the collision.
(b) Find the speed of each ball after the collision.
cue ball m/s
target ball m/s
