Finding velocity of molecules
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A 32 u oxygen molecule moving in the +x direction at 1100 m/s collides with an oxygen atom of mass 16u moving at 1648 m/s at 38 degrees to the + x-axis. The particles stick together to form an ozone molecule. Find the velocity of the ozone.
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution

Please review this about inelastic collisions - http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...inecol.html#c1
Note that momentum is a vector and in this problem there are two dimensions.
