## Homework Statement

Three balls of clay have masses m1 = 106 g, m2 = 148 g, m3 = 120 g, and speeds v1 = 1.48 m/s, v2 = 1.19 m/s, v3 = 1.85 m/s. They move in the directions: (1) at 45° from the horizontal, (2) horizontally left, and (3) vertically up. They collide simultaneously and stick together. Calculate the speed and the direction (angle) of the resulting blob of clay.

## Homework Equations

p=mv

## The Attempt at a Solution

Vx = 106 * 1.48 * cos(45) - 148 * 1.19 = -65.189882 m/s

Vy = 106*1.48sin(45) + 120*1.85 = 332.0309 m/s

V = sqrt(332.0309^2 + [-65.189882]^2) (answer?)

angle = arctan (Vy/Vx)

This isn't right is it,
