Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering if someone can help me, its been a while since I did classical mechanics, I have a question I would appreciate a little help from anyone!

2 objects with the same mass m and same velocity v have an inelastic collision . After the collision the 2 object system of mass 2*m moves with speed v/2. What is the angle "Theta" between the final line of motion and either of the initial velocities?

All I need is a way to get started if anyone can help!!

Thanks alot guys
