    A 7.2 kg bowling ball moving at 2.74 m/s strikes an identical ball that is originally at rest. After the collision the path of the intitially moving ball makes an angle of 27 degrees with respect to its original path. The path of the second ball makes an angle of -53 degrees with respect to the same direction. What is the speed of each ball immediately after the collision?
