I'm really stuck on this questions, I don't even know where to start, can anyone help me?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A particle of mass m1 and velocity v1 collides with a stationary mass m2. After the collision, the two masses are deflected as shown in the diagram. Show that the angle of deflection Angle2 of m2 is given by the formula:

See Attached for formula and diagram.

Thanks,
