## Homework Statement

We are only given variables in this problem, that is:

m1 travels at V, collides with 2m which is at rest

results in m going off at 45° at V1

2m also goes off at 45° down at V2

Calculate V1 and V2 in terms of V

## Homework Equations

Ʃρx-initial=Ʃρx-final

Ʃρy-initial=Ʃρy-final

Use Linear combinations; sin45= √2/2=cos45

## The Attempt at a Solution

x direction:

mv1=mv1√2/2+2mv√2/2

y direction

0=√2/2(mv1+2mv)
