Homework Help: Momentum ~ A 2.0kg blob of clay traveling to the north at

  1. Oct 29, 2012 #1
    A 2.0kg blob of clay traveling to the north at 6.0m/s inelastically strikes a 3.0kg blob of clay traveling south at 4.0m/s. What is the final velocity of the two blobs after the collision?

    This is what I think: Since both have the same momentum before striking together, would their final velocity be zero?
