Velocity of mass

  1. Aug 28, 2005 #1
    a 50 g ball of putty moving with a velocity of 3.0 m/s has an inelastic collision head-on with a stationary mass of 50g and sticks to it. find the velocity of the mass and putty after the collision.

    Do you remember any equations to use for this type of problem?

    just think about that inelastic collision means and use conservation of linear momentum.
