Lets say an object with an initial velocity collides with a still object. Collision is perfectly inelastic and the surface is frictionless. How can i know how far it traveled?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I solved for the sum of P final = the sum of P initial, but then i dont know how to relate to distance, all i have is velocity.
