Homework Help: physics

Posted by Katie on Saturday, March 3, 2012 at 12:14pm.

In a game of pool, the cue ball strikes another ball initially at rest. After the collision, the cue ball moves at 4.15 m/s along a line making an angle of -25° (i.e. below the x-axis) with its original direction of motion (the x-axis), and the second ball has a speed of 2.846 m/s.
Find the angle between the direction of motion of the second ball and the original direction of motion of the cue ball. Assume the masses are equal.

Find the original speed of the cue ball.


Is kinetic energy conserved?
