A 20g ball of clay traveling east of 3.0m/s collides with a 30g ball of clay traveling north at 2.0m/s. What are the speed and the direction of the resulting 50g ball of clay?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For most of the other problems in this homework, I've been using m1v1 = m2v2 to find whatever the question asked. I tried using that equation to find v2, but it wasn't right.
