For part(a),

The solution is,

However, I made a mistake somewhere in my working below and I'm not sure what it is. Does anybody please know? Thank you!

Here is a not too scale diagram at the moment of the collision,

## \vec L = \vec r \times \vec p ##

## \vec L = -y_{com}\hat j \times m_1v\hat i ##

## \vec L = y_{com}m_1v\hat k ##

## \vec L = \frac {m_2m_1v(r_1 +r_2)}{m_1 + m_2}\hat k ##
