Hi, i was wondering if someone could please help me on this question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A 50.0 Kg Object is moving east at an unknown velocity when it collides with a 60.0 Kg stationary object. After the collsion, the 50.0 Kg object is travelling at a velocity of 6.0 m/s 50.0° N of E, and the 60.0 Kg object is travelling at a velocity of 6.3 m/s 38° S of E.

What was the velocity of the 50.0 Kg object before the collision?

Can someone please explain to me how this question is solved. Thank-you.
