A hockey puck rebounds from a board as shown in Figure 16.

Figure 16 looks like this.

The puck is in contact with the board for 2.5ms. Determine the average acceleration of the puck over the interval.

So I know you have to use vector components. The answer says the avg. acceleration is 7.3x10^3m/s^2 [7.5 N of W] (degrees).

How do I solve it? =/

I have made an attempt.

I found that the vector components for v1x and v2x to add up to 43.57, and the components of v1y and v1x to add up to (-1.87). However, I'm not getting the correct average acceleration value in the end.
