Two shuffleboard disks of equal mass, one orange and the other yellow, are involved in a glancing collision. The yellow disk is initially at rest and is struck by the orange disk moving with a speed vi. After the collision, the orange disk moves along a direction that
makes an angle theta with its initial direction of motion. The velocities of the two disks are perpendicular after the collision. Determine:
1) the final speed of each disk;
2) whether the collision was elastic or not.
