In order to convert a tough split in bowling, it is necessary to strike the pin a glancing blow as shown in the figure. Assume that the bowling ball, initially traveling at 15.0 m/s, has four times the mass of a pin and that the pin goes off at 75 from the original direction of the ball.

(a) Calculate the speed of the pin.

(b) Calculate the speed of the ball just after collision.

(c) Calculate the angle through which the ball was deflected. Assume the collision is elastic and ignore any spin of the ball.
