You are driving your 1000-kg car at a velocity of(25 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
p1 + p2 = (m1 + m2)v
(2.5 x 10^4) + (-1.35 x 10^-2) = (1000 + 0.009)v
v = 25 m/s
