**1. Homework Statement**

**2. Homework Equations**

Conservation of liner and angular momentum

H1=H2

r x M

_{1}V

_{1}= r x M

_{2}V

_{2}

G1=G2

M

_{1}V

_{1}=M

_{2}V

_{2}

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I've gotten an equation for the velocity of the block and clay after the impact, and I also know that when the block reaches the highest point of its arc, its linear velocity is going to be the same as the velocity of the cart. Is the momentum going to be conserved and I can say M

_{b}V

_{1}=V

_{tot}(M

_{1}+M

_{2}+M

_{3})
