A hockey puck moving at 0.43 m/s collides elastically with another puck that was at rest. The pucks have equal mass. The first puck is deflected 35° to the right and moves off at 0.36 m/s. Find the speed and direction of the second puck after the collision.

2. Relevant equations

1/2mv2 + 1/2mv2 = 1/2mv2 + 1/2mv2

momentum initial = momentum final

3. The attempt at a solution
