A stationary ball with a mass of 1.6kg, is struck by an identical ball moving with a velocity of 3m/sec.

After the collision the two balls stick together and contiue moving in a straight line, what is the final velocity?

#### Solution Preview

Momentum before collision denote as p1

p1 = m*v1

where m = 1.6 kg, v1 = 3 m/s

Thus

p1 = 1.6 x 3 = 4.8 ...

#### Solution Summary

The linear momentum physics of wo balls colliding and sticking together is examined and the final veloicty of the combined combination is determined
