If a particle of mass m collides elastically with one of mass m at rest, and if the former is scattered at an angle T and the latter recoils at an angle f with respect to the line of motion of the incident particle, then show that m/M= sin(2f + T)/sin T

Solution:
If a particle of mass m collides elastically with one of mass m at rest, and if
