Two hockey pucks are sliding across the ice in the same direction. One has a momentum of 35 kg*m/s. The other has a momentum of 7 kg*m/s. After the collision, the pucks stick together. What is the momentum of the pucks after the collision?
The Attempt at a Solution
I'd think you'd just add them together because of the Law of Conservation of Momentum but for some reason I'd imagine they'd slow down after hitting. Is 42 kg*m/s the right answer and if so why?[/B]
