a diatomic molecule of oxygen traveling at 330m/s collides head on with a carbon dioxide molecule going 270m/s. The oxygen molecule bounces off the carbon dioxide molecule in the opposite direction going 365m/s. What is the speed and direction of the carbon dioxide molecule? (hint: use relative masses rather mass in kg)
