A 63-kg ice-skater glides with a speed of 10 m/s toward a 14-kg sled at rest on the ice. The ice-skater reaches the sled and holds on to it. The ice-skater and the sled then continue sliding in the same direction in which the ice-skater was originally skating. What is the speed of the ice-skater and the sled after they collide?

    conservation of momentum applies
    momentumbefore=momentum after
    63*10=(63+14)V
