"[CJ5 7.P.032.] The drawing shows a collision between two pucks on an air-hockey table. Puck A has a mass of 0.029 kg and is moving along the x axis with a velocity of +5.5 m/s. It makes a collision with puck B, which has a mass of 0.049 kg and is initially at rest. After the collision, the two pucks fly apart. A flys off the x axis with a 65 degree angle and B flys off the x axis with a 37 degree angle in the negative y direction.

Find the final speed of

(a) puck A and

(b) puck B.
