## Homework Statement

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?

## Homework Equations

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
