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.

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?
