# Conservation of Momentum in Inelastic Collisions

 P: 10 Can someone explain to me the vector nature of momentum in a case where two objects collide and stick together?
 Mentor P: 41,306 How about: $$m_1\vec{v}_1 + m_2\vec{v}_2 = (m_1 + m_2)\vec{v}_f$$ Read this: Inelastic Collisions
 P: 10 Yes! I remember seeing that link once before. I was looking for it but couldn't find it. Thanks Doc Al. :)
