You are driving your 1000-kg car at a velocity of(19 m/s )ι^ when a 9.0-g bug splatters on your windshield. Before the collision, the bug was traveling at a velocity of (-1.5 m/s )ι^.
What is the change in velocity of the car due to its encounter with the bug?
pi = pf
m1v1 + m2v2 = (m1 + m2)v
The Attempt at a Solution
i attempted to solve for the change in velocity using the equation outlined below and got answer of -3.0x10^-5. i know this answer is inncorrect but i cannot seem to locate my source of error
Δv=(1.9x10^4)+ (-1.35x10^-2) -19 m/s
