**drwls**, Wednesday, May 2, 2012 at 12:09amThe final momentum is the vector sum of the two initial momenta, which are perpendicular in this case. The eastward component is 48,000 and the southward component is 36,000 kg m/s. Note that you have a 3:4:5 right triangle. Divide the resultant momentum of 60,000 kg m/s by the combined mass for the final speed.
