    A stationary billiard ball, mass 0.17 kg, is struck by an identical ball moving at 4.1 m/s. After the collision, the second ball moves off at 60° to the left of its original direction. The stationary ball moves off at 30° to the right of the moving ball's original direction. What is the speed of each ball after the collision?

    final speed of initially stationary ball
    final speed of initially moving ball
