# Linear momentum and collisions - white and yellow ball

A white ball is moving and has a speed of 2 m/s and a yellow ball is at rest prior to an elastic glancing collision. After the collision the white ball has a speed of 1.23 m/s. To the nearest tenth of a degree, measured counterclockwise from east, what angle does it scatter at if the yellow ball is scattered at 280 degrees?
