Hopefully the comments in the script will be sufficient to explain the solution to this problem.

Perfectly inelastic collision between objects with odd angles

Listing 4 provides the description and the solution to a scenario involving a perfectly inelastic collision between two objects in a friction-free environmentmoving at odd angles. By odd angles, I mean that neither object is moving along either the x-axis or the y-axis, either before or after the collision.

Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
