Homework Help: Difficult Conservation question - HELP!

  1. Nov 21, 2004 #1
    63. A pool shark is forced to do a tricky shot in order to win a game. He needs to sink the target ball in the corner pocket at an angle of 30 degrees away from the collision location.

    The Cue ball needs to bounce off of the other ball at an angle of 315 degrees with a velocity of of 0.75 m/s. If he gives a cue ball a velocity of 1.00 m/s @ ) degrees what is the velocity of the target ball after the collision?

    --I'm just having a hard time visualizing this one, and if someone could help start me off that would be swell.
