An alpha-particle collides with an oxygen nucleus which is initially at rest. The alpha-particle is scattered at an angle of 67.0 degrees from its initial direction of motion, and the oxygen nucleus recoils at an angle of 52.0 degrees on the other side of this initial direction. What is the ratio, for alpha-particle to oxygen nucleus, of the final speeds of these particles? The mass of the oxygen nucleus is four times that of the alpha particle.
