Collisions question? (involving momentum)

  1. Mar 13, 2009 #1
    I've been trying solve this problem for a long time but can't figure it out.

    A 3.45 g ball is moving toward a stationary 5.82 g ball with a velocity of 45 m/s. The first ball bounces off at an angle of 36 degrees from its original path with a velocity of 28 m/s. What is the magnitude and direction of the velocity of the second ball after the collision? Is the collision elastic?

    Thank you.

    What have you worked out so far? Let's see some workings out.
