2. A 10.0 kg object moving to the right with a speed of 4.0 m/s collides and sticks to a 4.0 kg object moving to the left with a speed of 4.0 m/s. How much energy is lost as heat during the collision?

2. Calculate the final velocity Vf using the law of conservation of momentum, which must be obeyed.

10*4 - 4*4 = 14*Vf

14*Vf = 24 kg*m/s

Vf = +1.714 m/s (+ is to the right)

Now compare initial and finalkinetic energies. That is something you should do yourself.
