In a certain collision problem the kinematics are determined by the following three equations.

u = v1cosθ + √(2)v2

v1sinθ = √(2)v2

1/2mu² = 1/2mv1² + 1/2(2m)v2²

Use the first two equations to express v1 and v2 in terms of u, sinθ and cosθ. Then substitute into the third equation and obtain solutions for sinθ.

My working so far:

u = v1cosθ + v1sinθ

u = v1 (cosθ + sinθ )

v1 = u/(cosθ+sinθ )

v1² = u²/(cosθ + sinθ)²

--------------

v1 = u/( sinθ + cosθ )

v1sinθ = √(2)v2

usinθ/( sinθ + cosθ ) = √(2)v2

u²sin²θ/( sinθ + cosθ )² = 2v2²

1/2[u²sin²θ/( sinθ + cosθ )²] = v2²

Are these two correct? and if so what should I do next?
