8.27: Denote the final speeds as B A v v and and the initial speed of puck A as , 0 v and omit the common mass. Then, the condition for conservation of momentum is 0 . 45 cos 0 . 30 cos 0 B A v v v + ° = . 0 . 45 sin 0 . 30 sin 0 B A v v - ° = The ° 0 . 45 angle simplifies the algebra, in that sin , 0 . 45 cos 0 . 45 ° = ° and so the B v terms cancel when the equations are added, giving s m 3 . 29 0 . 30 sin 0 . 30 cos 0 = ° +
