A 2kg car is traveling east at 3 m/s and a 4kg car is traveling west at 6 m/s. Now assume the cars bounce off each other in a perfectly elastic collision. The final velocity of the 2kg car is -4 m/s. Find the direction and velocity of the other car after the collision.

A champagne bottle of mass 90 g has a 2 g cork in it. The pressure built up in the bottle causes the cork to shoot out, as shown below. If after the explosion, the bottle is moving directly to the left at 4 m/s, what is the velocity of the cork?

The red ball (4 kg) hits the blue ball (5 kg) moving at 2 m/s, and the balls move as shown in the figure below. $\theta$ = 30 degrees. After the impact, the red ball is measured moving at 1.8 m/s. What is the velocity of the blue ball, and at what angle relative to the horizontal is the ball moving after the impact?
