Initially, mass one (2.10 kg) has a velocity of 5.90 m/s and mass two (2.80 kg) is at rest. After they collide, mass one emerges at an angle theta = 33.0 degrees. What is the speed of mass one after the collision if the collision is completely elastic? (Note, there are actually two possible answers two this problem, choose the solution which has m1 going as fast as possible.)
What is the angle phi, between mass two's velocity and the initial velocity of mass one? (Give your answer as a positive number in degrees.)
What is the final speed of mass two after the collision?
